This exciting and interactive lesson will have students engaged and excited. They will learn about having a growth mindset and what it means to be determined through the use of a story and puppets (even the older students love a silly puppet). The "I-Can Toucan" is the perfect mascot for students and is easily remembered.
Included in the lesson are different activities that can make your lesson shorter or longer depending on what you are looking for. This is a lesson that both students and teachers remember and refer back to often.
Additionally, this lesson includes some ideas for teachers to continue the lesson and build on the skill organically in the classroom. This is a great lesson to do at the start of a new grade level, before standardized testing, or in the middle of the year when students start to burn-out and motivation is decreasing.
