• Da Brain Project


    • Create a 3D cross section of the human brain
              Color code, label, & illustrate correctly 

                   the “three brains” & 12 other locations


    Forebrain, Hindbrain, Midbrain


    Cerebral Cortex           Corpus Callosum       Thalamus           

    Hypothalamus             Pituitary Gland           Amygdala         

    Hippocampus              Basal Ganglia              Cerebellum       

    Medulla Oblongata       Pons                          RAS  


    •  In addition, create a second brain that includes the four lobes of the cerebral cortex

                Color coded & properly label

                Frontal lobe            Temporal lobe        Motor Cortex       Broca's Area  

                Occipital lobe           Parietal lobe          Sensory Cortex    Wernicke's Area  

    • Finally, submit a document to Blackboard explaining the function of each component of the brain above that includes a cover page, abstract describing what you learned (150 words or more), & a four paragraph paper that is divided into the four subheadings (forebrain, midbrain, hindbrain, & lobes/cortexes/areas).                   
    You may use just about any medium to create these brains.  In the past students have constructed their projects from clay, play-dough, carved Styrofoam, Crayola Model Magic, and foods.
