This poster will pop and students and teachers will stop to admire your work! This is the perfect Growth Mindset activity to promote kindness! I like to play music in the background while they are working and coloring. The Growth Mindset Quote Poster is designed so that each student colors their own block/piece of the poster. When everyone is done, they have to work as a team to put the block poster puzzle back together. Each poster has an abstract background to make your poster “pop”. Students will need color pencils, markers or crayons, tape and scissors. This activity is great because they can put a personal art twist on their own block. The included teacher and students directions are very simple to follow. The possibilities are endless with this activity! My favorite part is watching the kids work as a team to try to piece it back together. This is GREAT for community building and teamwork! Teachers should create a classroom that supports persistence, effort and even mistakes. Hanging the Growth Mindset Block Poster is the perfect reminder for students. How you choose to set it up in your classroom is up to you J Each student colors one “block” or section of a large poster.
