Mind Missions Learning was created to prepare students for College, Career, and Civic life using inquiry-based, creative problem-solving lessons. Every Mind Mission lesson provides a compelling Social Studies question known as the Mission. Students learn the context of the question by reading The Story. Next, students Team Up to develop supporting questions and gather evidence to address the Mission solution. They collaboratively create a unique solution for the compelling question. Each team presents their solution to the class. Finally, they evaluate the effectiveness and the variety of solutions using Reflection prompts.
The Mind Missions Digital System includes introductory lessons for student success and twenty integrated lessons aligned with Social Studies and Language Arts standards for your state. Leveled Stories to accommodate a variety of reading levels are included with each lesson.
Teacher-friendly lesson plans are accessible on any device. Student materials are available in four different reading levels to meet the needs of a variety of learners. Use Mind Missions materials on digital platforms or print what you need! Teachers and students love Mind Missions!
