Playing Cards for School Kids
Content builds on Growth Mindset by Carol Dweck
Together with Navigent, I created a set of playing cards to be used in education for school kids. The cards teaches children about the brain in five different categories, sport, food, sleep, neurons and challenges.
Content builds on Carol Dweck’s ‘Growth Mindset,’ which highly encourage you to learn with an open mind and make mistakes, as it is where you will learn the most. In addition to traditional teaching and learning, which taught you to think, you had a particular skill-set for something and not for other things, and got stuck, and didn’t learn new skills.
The illustrations are made in a fun and up-beat positive vibe, to make learning enjoyable and to draw in the kids. The design of the playing cards is based on a grid, that shows how much brain power you will get from eating this fruit, growing this kind of sport etc. Each categories is presented with its own color scheme, and colors are held pastel tones, to make them less dominant.
As playing card is a social game, it makes it a perfect learning-kit!:)
