Let students "play" with their brains! Student favorite! As they are guided through several different "tests" and activities, students learn about the different parts of their brains. You'll need some simple and easy-to-find materials such as pipe cleaners, straws, toothpicks, etc. You'll also need to assemble some small containers with things like pennies or pebbles to shake. The supply list is easy - we promise. As students are lead through the various activities, they answer questions on an accompanying worksheet.
