Sit spots: K-7

A sit spot is simply a favourite place in nature (or looking out a window at nature) that is visited regularly to cultivate awareness, expand senses and study patterns of local plants, birds, trees, and animals. The practice supports mindfulness, builds routine and increases focus.

Watch this video, then click on the links below for more about sit spots and nature journals.

We would love to see what your spot looks like! Parents and teachers can submit photos of your special place, or the view from it, to our Facebook Group. We will be adding prompts for your nature journal to our Facebook Group each week, so check back often for inspiration and ideas!
