Sometimes our students feel they cannot do much because they are little. This lesson can help students realize their potential even when they are small. The book Mousetronaut written by Mark Kelly, a real astronaut, shows how even the smallest of mice can do important and wonderful things when they try.
You will need to have the book Mousetronaut to teach this Growth Mindset lesson.
This Growth Mindset lesson includes a guide for a read-aloud of the book, follow up discussion questions for a small group or the whole class, and three worksheets to use to reinforce the lesson and have something to take home. If you like this lesson, check out this lesson that uses puzzles
