GRIT Activity: Famous Faces Growth Mindset Coloring Pages



These growth mindset coloring pages, includes quotes from some “famous failures” along with questions that prompt students to think about their own grit. Your students will love having “conversations” with famous people as they work on having a growth mindset and improving their grit! This makes a fun social emotional learning activity.

There are 16 people included in this growth mindset coloring pages resource! Students read the quotes, respond to the writing prompts to get them thinking about their “grittiness,” and then color in the comic book-type images when finished that make a great bulletin board or wall display.


Easy for Teachers & Fun for Kids!

A great resource starting off the year. I will be using it to help students with stamina and learning about GRIT and why we learn the things we do. Not only is it to learn new information but to build up that GRIT.

I love this. We talk all the time about grit in math. This was a great way to show some examples of famous people who demonstrate grit.
