This is your brain… (Pig Brain Dissection Demo)

brainIn October and November Mr. Hall spent time in class talking with the students about the human brain.  During that time basic brain parts and functions were identified and discussed.  The primary purpose was to increase awareness about how amazing our brains are and the importance of taking good care of it.  One of the big ideas was that we only have one brain and there is no substitute. Also, that our choices matter in taking care of the brain we have.  As a final piece to that conversation Mr. Hall will be dissecting a pig brain in class next Tuesday so the students can see some of the brain structures that were discussed and have the opportunity, if they wish, to touch a real brain.  If students feel uncomfortable, they may opt out of the activity.  Questions? Feel free to contact Kevin Hall.
