Click here to download. Just click "File" ---> "Make a Copy" and then edit the document as needed. 

If you're doing remote learning like my class, consider removing the answer key before sharing! I have given differentiated options in the directions for you to print and have students write the answers in the chart, print and have the kids cut and paste their answers into the chart, or for students to copy and paste the words from the word box into the chart.

Here is a fun video field trip to the NJ State House. It's very similar to the tour given on field trips.

Growth Mindset

Early on in the school year, we learn about Growth Mindset. It's based on a concept / book by Carol Dweck, and it has been adapted to apply to classrooms. Students are taught that effort and hard work are more important than thinking some people are naturally born "smart". The focus is on the journey of learning and growth vs the end product and a number grade.

We read My Fantastic Elastic Brain as well as some of the following books, some of which were part of a funded Donors Choose project on Social Stories:
