Product Description
I designed this game for our Family Night. The idea is to give those that participate a better understanding of the Growth Mindset and the opportunities/struggles on the path to the "Power of Yet".

Every player will receive a worksheet to fill out along their journey, and every player will start at "Change Your Thinking. Change Your Life!."

Set up all "tents" around the room at different stations:
*Change Your Thinking. Change Your Life.
*FAIL-First Attempt In Learning
*"Yet"
*STEPS
*Growth Mind Set
*Fixed Mind Set

Each of these tent stations will have a dice (dice are marked in small print as to which tent station they go with for ease of set up).

#1 I began my adventure at_____(< I'd fill in the blank with "Change Your Thinking. Change Your Life". [because every player starts at the same station]).

Player rolls the dice and will either get:
*How Do I Do It? --Go to Steps
*I'm the best at this! -- Go to Growth Mindset
*This is too hard! --Remain here (You would roll the dice again and move on)
*I can't do this! --Go to "Yet"
*First Attempt --Go to FAIL
*I was born this way! --Go to Fixed Mindset

Let's say I rolled and received "How Do I Do It? --Go to Steps"
I would then write on #2 The first thing that happened was ____ (< I'd fill in the blank with "How Do I Do It?") and went to _____ (< I'd fill in this blank with STEPS). Then proceed to the tent station labeled STEPS, roll the dice there and continue your journey as you roll the dice.

I've also taken the time to develop a Super Hero sheet so that students can write their "Can" statements and "Can't...YET" statements. Students can either draw their face for their Superhero or have a print out of their face (reduced in size to fit) and glue their face where the superhero's face should be. Students could do this activity before family night, and have their Superhero hanging on the wall for their family to see. This can also be a classroom activity to help engage students to understand there are opportunities and struggles in change; however, very worth the outcome!

I appreciate any feedback. Thank you.
