This growth mindset lesson is a companion to the book "Giraffes Can't Dance" by Giles Andreae and Guy Parker-Rees. This book is about how the giraffe sees himself and how others see him. You will need to own, purchase, or be able to borrow this book to use this lesson.
In this growth mindset lesson I have included stopping points for a read-aloud of the book, discussion questions for after the book, and two worksheets as a follow up. One for less advanced writers and one for more advanced writers.
We are really working on deeper level questioning at our school and these questions were crafted with that in mind.
I hope you and your class enjoy this growth mindset lesson. If you like it, please consider looking at this lesson about strategies
