Product Description
Why I Made this…
I was inspired to make this 2nd mini-unit after I finished teaching my 4th and 5th graders my original “Growth Mindset Brain Mini-Unit”. They were so excited to learn about the brain and wanted to know more! Some kids even asked to learn about synapses. Teacher heaven!

I was also inspired from seeing many of my students become easily frustrated when they face difficulty and I wanted to show them that the way they deal with their emotions can actually affect their brain and ability to learn.

What’s This About…
* So, this Mini-Unit is designed to be an extension of my first (check it out), introducing new concepts like Synapses, Emotions, and Fixed & Growth Mindset Comparisons. But, you can still use it effectively without teaching the original unit.

* All lessons are intended for the busy teacher and should take approximately 20-25 minutes each. You can do one lesson a day or spread them out and do one per week (which is what I do).

Mini-Unit Includes:
-----------------------------------------------
Lesson 1: What is Growth vs. Fixed Mindset?
   • PowerPoint Game: Growth vs. Fixed Mindset
   • Essential Question Poster and Word Wall Posters: Growth Mindset and Fixed Mindset
Lesson 2: Growing Dendrites = Learning
   • 3 Visual Slides
   • Worksheet: “Popping Dendrites” Self-Assessment - Awesome way for students to track how many dendrites they have on any topic throughout the learning process! You can use this sheet with any subject!
   • Essential Question Poster and Word Wall Posters: Neurons and Dendrites
Lesson 3: Synapses: Learning Something New Can Be Hard At First
   • 4 Visual Slides
   • Link to short video clip about Synapses and Learning
   • Synapse Exit Ticket: “Show What You Know”

Lesson 4: Emotions and Learning
   • 3 Visual Slides

* All Visual Slides now have Interactive Activities, Movement, and/or Discussion Questions built into each slide.

* Lesson Plans for each lesson including Common Core State Standard Connections.
