This is a great print and go growth mindset lesson which will spark conversations and deep thinking about mistakes and their role in learning and life with your upper elementary students.
This lesson includes a teacher guide, easy to read printouts of 8 different quotes about mistakes, and possible questions to ask during a group conversation. I have also included a worksheet as an option for those who do not wish to have a group discussion or for those who want an additional follow-up to this lesson.
This lesson is highly student-centered with only some scaffolding and guidance provided by the teacher. If you have the conversation afterwards and that is not something you usually do, I highly suggest spending time creating norms and expectations around group conversations before you begin.
