What's Super Sweet About this Growth Mindset Lesson?

❤️ The Game Show format is hands-on and experiential, with many of the challenges inviting students to role play.

❤️ This cooperative classroom game encourages reflective thinking, and is designed for students to show off and build on their smarts in different ways.

❤️ Plus, the questions and challenges are 100% customizable so if you like, you can edit them to better fit your specific needs.

❤️ It's low-prep, perfect for all you busy counselors and teachers!

❤️ Counseling Lesson Plan is also included!

The Game Show Categories Include:

ACT IT OUT: teams act out / role play the challenge prompt.

TRUE or FALSE: teams decide whether the statement is true or false.

SKETCH IT: teams quickly draw their answers.

IMAGINE IF: teams answer "Imagine If" questions, using their imagination & problem solving skills.

RISK: teams take a "risk" because the type of question and/or challenge is not revealed until chosen.

What's needed to play the Game Show?

✔ It is best used with a Promethean White Board or projector that that can be hooked up to your computer; it's formatted as a power point presentation and now google slides™, too!

✔If using for distance learning, all players need internet access.

✔ Want to go screen-free? No problem! This Game Show also comes with printable task cards with the same prompts as the Game Show challenges.

Provides lots of flexibility....

Given that the GAME SHOW takes 40-60 minutes to play, and sometimes we just don't have that much time....or that the GAME SHOW works best projected on a large screen, and sometimes the technology breaks down....or that there are days when we walk into the classroom and just know that a whole classroom game is not going to fly that day....and sometimes students need more quiet, reflective activities......I have included more than 6 additional formats that do not require the use of the power point presentation or google slides™. (Note: the additional activities do involve some printing prep-work.)
