Kids love to learn about their brains and there are many books and websites with information, games, experiments, and other resources to help students better understand their brains, and ultimately their learning processes. One comprehensive resource is Neuroscience for Kids. This website offers topics as diverse as neurotransmitters, sensory systems, the musical brain, and laughter. Dig into experiments, activities, and games for students of every age. Consider using Neuroscience for Kids’30-minute TV showwith your students. Get your students engaged in their brains!
