Our Elastic Fantastic Brains
We have been continuing our thinking and learning about fixed and growth mindsets this week in Year 1. We began with some pictures of a brain growing a plant and thought about what this means to us and if we have ever felt this way. We then thought about what makes a fixed and growth mindset and sorted the characteristics. After this we tested out our thinking using sponges to represent our fixed and growth mindset minds. We found that the growth mindset mind sponge felt heavier by the end meaning it was full of new knowledge and skills.
