Growth Mindset Escape Rooms BUNDLE - 4 pack - positive affirmations

Growth Mindset Escape Rooms BUNDLE - 4 pack - positive affirmations

The Growth Mindset Escape Rooms 4 Pack BUNDLE will take students on 4 separate secret missions around the classroom! The escape rooms have students decode inspiring quotes from famous figures, past and present, about growth mindset. Sometimes students just need a day of motivation or positive affirmation! Maybe it’s before a big state test or maybe it’s after they have worked so hard and achieved the results you were hoping for. Maybe it’s just the right activity to do with them to encourage their journeys. I do one per quarter and they love them! The Growth Mindset Escape Rooms have students walking around the classroom breaking codes. Students are given a secret code name and sent on secret missions. The codes include ciphers, Morse code, cryptograms and a final 4 digit combination based on the decoders/clues. Each clue and code is different. The codes require students to think differently to decipher or decode them. Some codes are easier than others. Some codes require critical thinking to determine what a letter/symbol stands for. Each code will reveal an inspirational quote from a famous figure about growth mindset. The use of secret code will keep your students engaged while competing to find the final 4 digit combination. No props needed!! Students can report the final combination to you. If you wanted to, you could purchase a 4 digit lock that you program, but it is not necessary at all! The best age range for this resource is 8+. Please look at the preview to determine if this resource works for your age group. Younger students may need some help with some of the more difficult codes. You can use the pre-labeled clues or you can challenge older kids to choose/find the decoder that works for each of the clues. A set of labeled and non-labeled decoders are included. An answer key and teacher directions are provided. Time needed: 30-60 minutes/escape room Each Growth Mindset Escape Room has a different mission, different code name and different decoders.

GCSE AQA 9-1 Medicine & Health Revision Table FULL TOPIC: Medieval, Renaissance, Industrial, Modern

GCSE AQA 9-1 Medicine & Health Revision Table FULL TOPIC: Medieval, Renaissance, Industrial, Modern

Included in these documents is a two-sided, A3, 4000+ word revision table for the Medicine / Health course. It sorts the course into its 4 time periods, and sorts the content by the seven key factors that AQA requires students to learn about for the 16-mark question (amounting to 10% of the GCSE): War, Religion/Superstition, Chance, Communication, Government, Science/Technology, Role of Individuals. This table then analyses the impact of these seven factors in the four major aspects of the course: (1) beliefs about the causes of illness, (2) treatment, (3) surgery, (4) public health. Included is a blank table, the completed table, and a document containing all of the cards mixed up (in case you wish to use this as a card sort revision activity).
