5th graders at all elementary schools in SLP proved their ability to work together as a team while maintaining their individuals growth mindsets in order to free the brain from the fixed mindset prison!! Each group had approximately 35 minutes to solve a number of tricky tasks and clues. I'm happy and proud to report that every group accomplished this goal!
I knew this activity was impactful when a student who struggles with feeling motivated, shyly approached me with his teacher and said quietly with a toothy grin, "I LOVED that challenge!!" This made my heart full and reminded me of the true capabilities and potential of each and every student.
