In Grade 4, to celebrate our Brain Awareness Week, students researched an inquiry question of interest to them. They then researched this question using text and online resources, decided how they wanted to share their findings, and presented a final piece using a format of their choice to an audience of their choice. These projects were all very different but stemmed from our same Driving Question: How can we as Grade 4 students inquire into how the brain helps us live our lives? Here are two examples of the finished presentations.
Emily and Claudia's Prezi about dreams and the brain.
Marina's RSA animate about sleep and the brain.
How does our brain help us live our lives everyday?
