Have fun in a middle school human body systems unit - let students "play" with their brains! Student favorite!
As the worksheet guides students 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, and small containers of things to smell (vinegar, coffee - whatever you have on hand). The supply list is easy - we promise. As students are lead through the various activities, they answer questions on an accompanying worksheet.
