The Brain


Our The Brain lesson plan teaches students about the human brain, including what it is, why it is important, and how it is connected to the rest of the body. Students also learn related vocabulary and learn about the different parts of the brain.


Our The Brain lesson plan examines the major parts and functions of the brain. This informative lesson explores the correct pronunciation of brain parts, as well as their significance and function with a fun Brain Game that leverages collaborate learning while solidifying understanding. During this lesson, students are also asked to correctly label each part of the brain on their own, demonstrating their understanding of the lesson material.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to describe the human brain and identify its major parts and functions.

The Brain Lesson

We are still using it. I like how it briefly explains each part of the brain and is easy to understand for myself and the students.

Good material

My kids learned a bit from this lesson, but I felt like it didn't quite go into enough detail on what specific bparts of the brain did.
