A's gifted class studied all things about the brain.
They learned all about it and how it functions.
Things I have never heard of in my life...she is in the 3rd grade.
I had to teach myself all about the brain so that I could help her study and work on a project.
The coolest part was their culmination activity.
First, a neurologist came in and brought several different brains (including a human one)
for the children to look at.
Then their teacher had gotten sheep brains for them to dissect.
I got to go and watch this part. WOW! The things we do for our children.
A didn't want to do anything but watch at first. I sort of made her do it.
I knew that she would regret not doing it later, and now she is glad she did.
Here she is with her sheep brain.
We cut it open and got to see all the parts. VERY COOL!
Way to go A! I am so proud of you for facing your fears and learning something new!
