Since we are looking at character traits right now, the 5th graders took a self-assessment through Thrively online to determine what their main interests and passions are currently. What is nice about this is that the students felt, for the most part, that the Thrively assessment was pretty accurate. In addition to listing the top traits of each individual, Thrively offers suggestions for activities to pursue their interests. It also gives “Pathways” to different careers so students can learn more about them. By identifying certain strengths in each student, Thrively will allow them to explore activities and ideas that will support their interests – giving them even more opportunities to experience our world in different ways.
