2nd Grade

Second Graders have been comparing/contrasting the brain and a computer. They have also been analyzing the 6 parts of the brain using an app called 3D BRAIN and using a teacher generated Blendspace on the brain. They are preparing for the Tournament of the Brain, in which teams will debate WHY their part of the brain is THE MOST IMPORTANT. You can ask them to name the 6 parts and see if they can tell you what they do (function).
