Growth Mindset vs Fixed Mindset Sorting Activity:
This growth mindset vs fixed mindset sorting activity is perfect for any 2nd-grade (and UP) classroom.
All sorting cards are available in full color and in black and white (as well as a set of smaller cards if teachers would like to print a set for each student).
You will also find opportunities for students to reflect on their own experiences. Each fixed mindset statement is also listed on a separate sheet so that students can practice reframing statements from a fixed mindset to growth mindset.
Please note that if your students are not familiar with fixed mindset and growth mindset concepts, they will need some introductory instruction and information prior to using these sorting cards.
There are 60 different statements (30 growth mindset statements and 30 fixed mindset statements).
NOTE: THIS FILE INCLUDES A DIGITAL DISTANCE LEARNING OPTION!
This product includes a digital option (as well as the no prep printable option). The instructions for utilizing the digital portion appear at the end of the packet.
This PDF file contains 44 pages + Google Slides™.
