This is derived from an activity where the students listed what each brain region did while driving. I took it a bit farther to make it more interesting but also to minimize students copying from one another.
I let the kids work together if they wanted and this activity was a huge hit. The kids got a kick out of it.
I gave the kids 3 seconds to change seats and sit by a friend if they wanted. I had 4 copies of each of the profiles and I simply went around the room and gave each section a couple profiles. I allowed the student to look up any unknown items (like the TT) on their phones or laptops.
The only problem I had was that I still had some students who would not be specific when relating the brain region to the profile. Saying something like, “the cerebellum is about balance” instead of “Smythe Smith-Smythington’s cerebellum is helping him balance during the TT.”
You could of course come up with your own profiles if you don’t like any of these. You could use just one in a class if you wanted to try to have a key.
There is no key since the answers could obviously vary widely.
