As a coordinator or STEM projects, I have started incorporating Growth Mindset lessons together with STEM with great results.

Why Pair STEM with GROWTH MINDSET?
Why is teaching them BOTH together so important? Students with a positive growth mindset are much more likely to take chances, think outside the box, and persevere when their first ideas don't quite work out as planned. This is ESSENTIAL for STEM study and one of the main goals of exploring STEM.
Don't Miss the BUNDLE
This set is part of a larger Bundle 1 and also part of the Full Year Mega Bundle.
You can take a quick look at the significant savings you'll benefit from when choosing the bundles, and read about how other teachers have been using this in their classrooms!
STEM Mega Bundle for the Entire Year (Bundle 1 and 2 together)
There are 4 steps in each Fairy Tale set.
1 - A Fairy Tale partner play to read aloud. Students decide which characters have a growth mindset and which have a fixed mindset.
2 - A Growth Mindset Workbook (see thumbnail and preview)
3- Each story sets up a simple STEM challenge. Students use the materials you provide to create different things to "help" the characters from the story.
4- A STEM Workbook, which guides students through the STEM process of brainstorming, improving and reflecting on the engineering process.
WHAT KIND OF SUPPLIES WILL I NEED?
You can use any supplies you have for the STEM projects - just toss them into bins and you're ready to go. Some suggestions are: tape, craft sticks, glue, foil, straws, string, wire or pipe cleaners, small paper cups, elastic bands, plastic spoons, etc.
