Brainy Learning Lizards

To understand how we learn best and how to better prepare ourselves for learning, we have been studying the brain.

First, we watched a great video that explains how our brain works. You can watch it here:

We talked about the different facts in the video. Then, we made brain caps that showed which parts of the brain controlled different things on our body. For example, our sense of sight is controlled by the occipital lobe at the rear of the brain!

Our Home Learning Task this week is to create a fact sheet showing 10 facts about the brain. We have to make them as interesting as possible. Did you know that the left side of the brain controls the right side of the body and vice versa?

What is your favourite fact about the brain? What did you learn from the Learning Brain video that you did not know before?
