This activity guides students through making a model of the human brain. The project calls for 15 items to be depicted on the model and a key. These include all 4 lobes, 3 areas on the brainstem, 3 parts of the limbic system, 2 speech areas, and more.
This is designed primarily for a normal level class, though an AP class would benefit from it as well and more areas can be added to the list to make it more extensive.
Students benefit from the hands-on creation of the brain. I also use their models to quiz them upon finishing. This encourages them to complete the project and work hard while in groups so they are familiar with their work.
