Macbeth - A Shakespeare themed Mindfulness and Relaxation Lesson Plan
Macbeth is a wonderful play to introduce children to Shakespeare. With its witches and wickedness it captures children's imaginations and can win over even the most reluctant convert to the Bard.
This lesson has been designed for children aged 7+ years and includes relaxation techniques such as breathing techniques and simple yoga poses as well as basic mindfulness strategies.
Mindfulness and relaxation have been proven to increase children's concentration, create a calm atmosphere and even increase attainment. It is a wonderful addition to any setting.
All my lesson plans are created for people with no prior knowledge of relaxation and mindfulness techniques and carefully go through every technique step by step. They also include a fun script for you to read through which incorporates all the techniques learned into an enjoyable, relaxing story which is completely age appropriate.
My lessons now all come with a child and teacher assessment sheet which is fully editable and enables you to show evidence for the progress and learning for each child.
This lesson is suitable for children ages 7+ years.
