This activity demonstrates the importance of wearing a helmet to protect the brain. An egg is used to symbolize a head with the shell as the skull and the inside of the egg as the brain.
In this neuroscience activity (5th activity on the page), learners explore their sense of touch without using their senses of vision and hearing.
In this activity, learners play a trick on their own brain to see if the brain can learn to ignore distracting input. Colors and words are used to play the visual trick, known as a Stroop Test.
In this activity, learners discover a brain process called habituation.
In this activity, learners experiment with the Stroop Effect by challenging themselves and others to try and read a list of colors as quickly and accurately as possible, with a twist.
In this activity, learners make an optical illusion toy from the 1800s to explore persistence of vision.
Use this activity (10th on the page) to help learners explore memory and how sometimes your brain makes up its own memories. Learners will read and try to remember the words in list #1.
In this activity related to the famous "Stroop Effect," learners explore how words influence what we see and how the brain handles "mixed messages." Learners read colored words and are asked to say th
In this activity, learners discover that the human brain is highly adaptable. Learners try to toss beanbags at a target while wearing prism goggles.
We don't normally view people upside down and so our brains aren't accustomed to it.
This is a quick and simple demonstration about reflexes (second activity on the page).
In this activity about the baroreceptor reflex (BR) arc (page 123 of the PDF), learners discover the importance of maintaining adequate arterial blood pressure through a role playing exercise.
In this activity, learners construct a device that allows them to view 2-D images in 3-D.
In this activity, learners dissect a piece of pizza to learn about nutrients important for health.
In this activity, learners construct a three-dimensional ambiguous cube to explore visual illusions and how our brains interpret or misinterpret information.
In this activity, learners work together to create a life-sized drawing of the human nervous system.
In this activity, learners use two different techniques to estimate how many little things fit into one bigger thing.
In this activity about depth perception, learners create an optical illusion in a shoe box.
In this activity, learners work in partners to create and exchange messages written in Braille. Learners use a Braille key and thumbtacks to write their messages in Braille.
