Neuroscience for Kids
Explore the nervous system like you’ve never done before. Do experiments and activities, track down other Internet neuroscience resources, find websites for teaching neuroscience, keep current with new discoveries in brain research, find out what Brain Awareness Week is all about. There are a lot of detailed lesson plans, activities and even a neuroscience colouring book to keep any student busy learning about the brain.
This is a real fun, intriguing and educational site. Once you and your students try the innovative puzzles, games and experiments on this site and find out why they stimulate your brain in a certain way, you can’t help but be hooked into the science behind neuroscience.
My favourite section is the Experiments and Activities section. This section is packed with interactive games and lessons on all aspects of the brain. Try the Colors, Colors for grades K-12. How do words influence what we see (or say we see)?
You’ll be surprised and intrigued.
