This month, I am working with my 3rd grade students on cultivating a growth mindset. Today, I shared one of my all-time favorite lessons: challenging students to build the tallest possible tower out of wooden blocks–using only chopsticks. No hands! It’s an intentionally challenging task that gives kids the opportunity to persist, overcome obstacles, use positive self-talk, learn from mistakes, change tactics, and think outside of the box. Looking forward to sharing this with more students throughout the week!
