Free growth mindset resources for primary schools

This short video and printable teaching resources provide a complete lesson plan to help explore the characteristics of a fixed mindset and a growth mindset with your students. It busts the myth of perfection and teaches students to appreciate their mistakes and failures. It explains that fear is a natural universal emotion, how challenges help students grow, and provides students with tips on how to switch on their growth mindset.

The video is a story of two seeds – both planted on the same day, in the same soil, in the same garden bed. One has a growth mindset—with a curious desire to grow and reach the outside world—while the other has a fixed mindset—filled with fear and choosing the remain stagnant in its soil.
