Growth Mindset- For Growth Mindset day we were learning about our brains. When you try hard to learn something new, connections grow from neurons and attach to other neurons. Then your brain can send messages faster, making part of your brain bigger and stronger. Making mistakes really helps you learn, because your brain keeps trying new things and stretching until you figure out the answer to your problem.You are shaping a more elastic brain when you learn new things that build on what you already know.
