The book written by Carol Dweck entiled "Mindset" is a great book for all teachers to read. It talks about how you can have 2 mindsets, fixed or growth. Teaching our students to have a growth mindset is so important as they grow and learn that they will not be perfect at everything the first time. That if they fail, that doesn't mean to give up, but to try again!
This unit is a great way to introduce the concept of the fixed and growth mindset. A bulletin board set is included to set up in your classroom (see the preview to see more detail).
Extensions and activities are included to help your students learn the difference between a fixed and growth mindset.
The book "Your Fantastic Elastic Brain" is used in this unit.
