5 Blue Growth Mindset

Today we learnt about two mindsets. One which will always hold us back and another which will help us to persevere and become resilient. Do you remember the correct psychological terms for these two mindsets?

Below are images of some of the activities we undertook today to help grow our mindsets.

Challenge one: Create an origami penguin without instruction, some of us struggled and some of us peresevered. After we evaluated our own thoughts we had a go again, we supported one another and followed a few basic instructions. This resulted in a whole class worth of penguins being produced, some even created a whole family of penguins. What did we gain from this activity?

Our second challenge of the day was explaining the importance of growth mindsets and reflecting on our personal challenges we have overcome. Please share when you’ve used your growth mindset to overcome a challenge?
