How to Create a Simple Sensory Station to Help Your Students Regain Focus

Sometimes, useful art classroom strategies come from other content areas.

Both groups can benefit from a sensory “brain break” that gives them a chance to refocus and increase their classroom productivity.

Watch this short video to see how easy it would be to implement in your classroom; whether through a large station or a small tabletop container.

Do you offer sensory breaks in your classroom?

If so, what materials do you use within your sensory station?
