Today the children were re-capping on the importance of having a growth mindset. We talked about how our brain is like a muscle and needs exercise. Exercise for our brain includes working hard, practicing a skill, persevering at a difficult task or seeking a challenge. In other words we can get smarter by working hard!The children were very knowledgeable about this. We then had to put this into practice. The children were given an egg and told that we were going to drop it from a height. Their task was to work as a team to make something to protect the egg. The task required teamwork, perseverance, problem solving not to mention emotional management.The children did very well and most eggs were saved from being cracked.
