Make a whole set of lesson about the necessity of mistakes.

Where you get it wrong if you don't get it wrong first before you get it right. Then to be correct you must first be incorrect and then correct.

And that way the brain really takes in which is the right answer

Mad-lib like we used to do with Rowan help too.
You fill in the blanks - have one version that requires crazy silly and wrong answers and one correct version.

Also modules about the mistakes that famous scientists made and how they got then to right answers after making the mistakes.

And how they'd never have gotten to the right answers if they hadn't made those mistakes first.

And then other lessons where he sees other people make mistakes and then use those mistakes to figure the right way out.

We do have a lesson plan module in the testing section about mad-lib here: ntls.co/courses/lesson-plans/271-testing

You also have a really neat physics lesson where failure is the only way to get answers at:
ntls.co/courses/lesson-plans/315-science...-standard-science-1b

Can be used beginning of the year to introduce the idea of failure as a good thing, could be adjusted to teach money value in lower grades, and certainly start teaching the scientific process/ engineering design process- very flexible fun lesson!
