These STEM challenges are introduced to students with Fairy Tale Partner Plays. Each partner play incorporates Growth Mindset concepts to equip your students to take risks and embrace mistakes as part of the learning process! There are flipbooks for both growth mindset concepts AND STEM concepts to walk students through the process and solidify learning. All the work is done for you - just collect a few supplies like tape, straws, craft sticks, pipe cleaners and paper and toss them into bins!
Here is BUNDLE 2 of my best selling Growth Mindset STEM Fairy Tale sets!

When coordinating STEM curriculum for grades 1-5, I am always looking for new ways to incorporate STEM in ways that won't require teachers to do a lot of prep or organization.
With this bundle, all the work is done for you!
Why is teaching STEM and Growth Mindset 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.
How Does It Work?
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 - Make a Growth Mindset Flip Book based on the fairy tale.
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- Make a STEM flipbook which guides students through the STEM process of brainstorming, improving and reflecting on the engineering process.
There are 8 Fairy Tales or Fables in this bundle:
1. The Tortoise and the Hare - Make a vehicle to win the race
