“Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.” ― Aristotle

Brain

on November 15, 2012

On Tuesday I showed the class a DVD about the brain. They were fascinated to learn about nerves and the spinal column.
In the next couple of weeks when I read stories to the class I will pause and get them to identify what parts of the brain the characters are using: Prefrontal Cortex for rational thought, Amygdala
for fight or flight response, or Hippocampus for memories.
