Resources: Classroom Lessons

New learning habits are fueled by encouraging role models.

Print out Activities as independent handouts or Experiments as group lessons for your classroom.

Activities encourage coloring, cutting, and folding, and they demonstrate brain anatomy. Students are able to read a brief description of the various parts of the brain and body.

Experiments are active learning tools that allow students to find out more about their own brains and bodies.
