Play-Doh Brains at Spanish Oaks

Megann McKendrick

Miss McKendrick's class loved learning about the brain through some hands-on science.  Using the book "The Growth Mindset Coach", the class got into groups and put together their very own brain using Play-Doh.  After each part was completed on their play-doh brain, they would test each other on the roles of each part:  Pre-Frontal Cortex, Cerebrum, Cerebellum, Amygdala, Hippocampus, and Brainstem.  Did you know your Amygdala helps you feel emotion?  These kids do!
