    My school has been practicing mindfulness, with mixed results. I am trying to have an open mind, since, as a science nerd, I am not sure my mind works like most of my colleagues to start with. We were encouraged to have these "zen" coloring pages available. My personal experience with them is that they drive me bonkers, creating tons of stress as I try to stay within the lines. This is NOT where my creativity lives. I will say that some students, however, live to do these, so I am including some of the sites with free templates, to keep you from having to buy the books with these in them. I have managed to work a few of the nature ones into the lessons, but otherwise they help some students stay in the moment, I am told.

    I don't have a recommendation, but if coloring pages are what you need, start here.

    http://www.hhmi.org/biointeractive/wildcam-gorongosa This is a nice tie in to the other biodiversity and ecosystem links from HHMI.org. This citizen science site is a new feature, and I can't wait to spend some time with it when my current grad class is completed.

    I would like to thank my sister for sharing this with me - she knows a science geek when she sees one! Thanks Sis!

    Especially watch "Popped Secret" about the ancestry of modern corn. The pay off comes close to the end of the DVD, where it shows that the ancestor ALSO pops, even tasting like modern popped corn. It is a great example of something that probably happened by accident that set off the genetic modifications that turned the ancestor into the corn we know today. I think this is very interesting, the beneficial accident that changed history. Enjoy it! Remember, the greatest form of genetically modified food is what humans have accomplished through selective breeding over the centuries.
