Growth Mindset: Deema the Duck- Don’t Give Up

One sunny morning, Deema the duck was happily swimming along the river where she lived. The
river was flowing very fast and her legs had to paddle very quickly under the water so she didn’t get
washed down the river! That morning, some children went with their teacher down to throw some
bread to feed the ducks. All the other ducks were swimming nearer to the edge than Deema, and
quickly gobbled up most of the bread before swimming away. Deema could see the children
throwing bread but the river was too fast for her to swim over. She tried to swim over three times,
but each time she nearly got washed underneath the water! After that, she saw a rock nearby. She
used all her energy to swim to the rock, then jumped over the fast flowing water to where the
children were, and because they had seen how Deema hadn’t given up they threw her some extra
