Details of Major Brain Awareness Week Events/Activities:
We provided a week-long program concentrating on the nervous system and the brain. The students studied this topic by interacting with a 27 slide powerpoint presentation presented by their classroom teachers. Then they each read a book on the brain and/or nervous system. They wrote an essay on that book. They then presented that essay in front of their classmates. They also participated in a science experiment related to the brain and nervous system. Later that week they wrote a lab report on this experiment. At the end of the week the students had a better understanding of how the brain and nervous system works.
