Whales Make Peace Puppets

Whales continued their exploration of peace this week, expanding their understanding of how peacefulness affects their body and their mind. We gathered in small groups and brainstormed ideas for what peace felt like, looked like, and sounded like. We wrote letters to one another, sharing reasons we appreciate one another. Whales experimented with ways they could find a sense of peace in their own bodies as Ms. Julie led them through a visualization story, and practiced guided meditation together. After another puppet show with Jonathon and Nicole (two friends who are trying to learn about peace), Whales decided that they would like to make their own Peace Puppets. We spent Thursday morning creating our own puppets. After becoming such experts on peacefulness, the Whales have been asked to perform some puppet shows about kindness and peace for the Sharks and Dolphins. What fun!
