My Growing Brain!

If you have followed my other blog then you know my obsession with Growing Brains since the summer. I was finally able to hit the jackpot and find them just in time for this activity. 
This is how we started our activity. We compared the brain to a decorative rock so we could have an idea of the size of the brain. We also thought of different items the brain was similar in size to. 
We added our brain to our jar, added water and added our magic yellow tablet. We observed the reaction. 
We added another magic tablet and observed the changes and made predictions. 
This activity provided us the perfect opportunity to observe, discuss, notebook and communicate our understandings with each other. 

We even had a little fun pretending to be The Scientist of the Day! 
I think we are ready to start some serious investigations!

  1. I love this experiment. My students really enjoyed the Human Body Rap Video from I can't wait to try this experiment next year!
