 Teacher Education Students Learn
About Stress By Repairing Broken Pieces


 Students have been discussing what things today can cause teens to stress out. During this activity, they listed all the stressors on their clay pots.  The pots were then placed in a plastic bag and the students used a hammer to break the pot; showing their frustration when they are stressed. Students then used masking tape to put the pot together again. Each piece of tape represented an idea that helps students to destress.  The lesson taught the students that they can get stressed out quickly and that there are many resources available to them to help them to destress
