Neuro - Week One 2/16/23

Published on 16 February 2023 at 16:37

This is a photo of our tutor team walking to Gilbert Linkous Elementary School for our first session on 2/16/23! We are a team of 15 tutors and are working with 10 kids in the 3rd-5th grade. They're going to have a lesson on Neuroscience each week, and write a story about the brain. Their stories are fictive, but they're already thinking of their characters as neurons and neurotransmitters!


Today we helped our students pick a topic for their story. We showed them how to brainstorm characters and story plots. Then, we created a timeline map together, showing the journey their characters would go on as they travelled through the brain.

Look below to see some of the options they had to choose from for their topics!

We also taught our students their first lesson on Neuroscience and did a fun activity that you can see below. They learned about cells, neurons, neurotransmitters, and the four lobes, which are: the frontal lobe, parietal lobe, temporal lobe, and occipital lobe. 

What do you think the word should be? Type in the comments!
