Researching famous failures! Even the most famous people had to overcome obstacles.

Here are a couple activities I did with my students in working with Mindset.

First we worked in pairs to rewrite fixed mindset phrases into growth mindset phrases.

Then we researched famous people who struggled at some point in their lives and how they overcame those obstacles. What struggles and successes did they have in their lives?

I also made sheets that can be blown up to poster size with famous faces and quotes.

I hope these activities help your students come to a better understanding of mindset.
