Your Fantastic Elastic Brain Activities for Upper Elementary:
These literature unit activities for Your Fantastic Elastic Brain by JoAnn Deak has a digital distance learning option in Google Slides. Please refer to the final seven pages of the file for the link and instructions.
Are you teaching your students about growth mindset? Your Fantastic Elastic Brain by JoAnn Deak is a perfect segue for teaching your students the power of growth mindset. Conceptually, these ideas are perfect for any level, but this literature unit was created with 3rd-6th graders in mind.
I recommend starting the school year (or your growth mindset instruction) with material that teaches students about the brain. This provides students with a solid foundation for building subsequent growth mindset instruction.
Infused with reflections, challenges (including a STEM challenge for creating slingshots using rubber bands), and opportunities to identify and clarify growth mindset vs fixed mindset, your students are sure to learn and have a great deal of fun!
Your Fantastic Elastic Brain activities include:
- Brainstorming ways to use elastics
- Comparing and contrasting using a Venn diagram
- Fixed Mindset vs. Growth Mindset
- Prompts for student reflections
- A rubber band challenge
- Identifying parts of the brain and their purpose
- Fantastic Elastic Brain bookmarks (in full color and black and white)
- Slingshot STEM challenge
- Growth Mindset Posters (5 posters in full color and in black and white)
- Answer Keys where deemed appropriate
NOTE: THIS 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 file contains 37 pages + Google Slides™.
