Part of the integrated focus of room 24 included some science this week! During Pirate club we are studying the Unthkinkable Brain Eater. One way to understand this Unthinkable and defeat him is to learn more about the brain , how to grow neurons and how our attention works.
For our first lesson we watched Ned Neuron, read the book, Your Fantastic Elastic Brain and made Neurons!
We learned to grow these important brain structures we needed to learn or try new things, not give up even if we make mistakes, keep practicing and stay curious!
The next day each child wrote how they planned to grow more neurons.
