PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Brain caps are a favorite in my Honors Anatomy and Physiology course and a very cool, far less expensive, alternative to brain dissections. Students create a models of cortical structures and functional regions of the brain on one side of a swim cap, and a midsagittal view of deep structures and functional regions of the brain on the other. This project takes a little less than a week to complete, and is fast and easy to grade, plus students end up with the coolest swim cap ever! After caps are well cured, I have had students on swim and water polo teams use them in the pool :-)

This activity is designed for honors level 11th and 12th graders, but could easily be adapted for 9th and 10th graders and standard level anatomy courses by eliminating some of the detail required for the project.

Included: Teacher note and instructions for guiding the brain cap activity (including a suggested timeline), student instructions (including a list of required structures and functional areas of the cortical and midsagittal views of the brain), rubric, power point with pictures showing all regions of the brain for reference (and as an answer key).
