I. Welcome Craft - Peace Sticks
Using string and a stick, we will make Peace Sticks. Thoughts on peace will be written down each week. Then we will wrap the stick with coloured string. Each week, we will use a different colour.

III. Movement Activity
Parachute - We’ve been discussing circles. With our parchute, we took turns working together to make it go way up high. We experimented with what hapens when everyone just moves it whatever way they want. We took turns running under the parachute and changing places on the circle. We took some Whiffle balls and tried to work together to keep them from jumping out.
Due to popular demand - we played Together Tag again.
IV. Movement Meditation
The children moved to a guided meditation where they were stones, sticks and other quiet natural things.
