OUTDOOR SCHOOL: ZEN AND THE ART OF ROCK BALANCING

This past week, Junior School classes have been exploring Lynn Canyon in our Outdoor School classroom. Our rock-balancing activity, inspired by outdoor enthusiast and artist Michael Grab, allowed students to work collaboratively to construct rock towers. This activity sparked discussions on patience, perseverance, and collaboration while meaningfully connecting students to their environments. Students were content to work endlessly on their constructions with one student building 32 towers in total! It was so wonderful to observe students as they worked peacefully and happily on their masterpieces.
