The George Washington Growth Mindset Collaborative Block Poster can be used as a fun team-building activity. Students work together to piece their George Washington “block” with their classmates. The result is a beautiful, fun, one of a kind pop-art to hang in the hall. George Washington’s powerful quote can be a daily reminder of positive growth mindset. This resource can also be used to introduce George Washington and the Revolutionary War.
You can use the George Washington Growth Mindset Block Poster as a bulletin board display, hang on the classroom wall, classroom door, hallway, school entrance, library, gym or any place you see fit. This poster will pop and students and teachers will stop to admire your work!
This is the perfect activity to relax and celebrate Presidents Day! I like to play music in the background while they are working and coloring. The 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”. Collectively, your students CHOOSE the colors as a team!
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 student 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 George Washington Growth Mindset Poster is the perfect reminder for students.
How you choose to set it up in your classroom is up to you. Each student colors one “block” or section of a large poster. This product includes 25 “blocks” or pages to color. I do understand that some of you will have less than twenty five students, as do I. There are ALWAYS students that finish early that are eager to color a second page. I also like to sit down with my students and color a “block”. Print the file ONE time for each class on 8.5×11 paper!
•25 different blocks to color (1 per student)
The final poster size is around 30”x 34”
