Inquiry-Based Mindfulness

STRAND: Supporting the Social and Emotional Needs of Students Post-COVID-19

Show Details

High school biology students use an inquiry-based approach to investigate the impact of five-minute mindful meditation in the classroom.

Attendees will learn: 1. about the statistically significant impact short amounts of mindful meditation have in a classroom setting, both before and during the COVID-19 pandemic; 2. about connecting mindfulness to physiological factors, such as heart rate, blood pressure, and respiration rate; and 3. to recreate this experiment with their own classes and integrate this activity into a biology or life sciences curriculum.
