Help Students Soar! Social and Emotional Learning Resources

Part of the December 2019 STEM Resources Digital Calendar!

We want to inspire our students to transform the world with their ideas, creativity, and knowledge. Innovation is a difficult journey. The greatest inventions that transformed the world took thousands of attempts and years of frustration and problem-solving. Many students want to give up after one attempt at a solution. They need a lot of support to develop the determination and perseverance to understand that each attempt helps us understand a problem more and get closer to a solution. Below are free social and emotional learning resources, curriculums, posters, videos, and games!
