The Cookie Crumbles: A Case of Sensory Sleuthing. BrainLink: Sensory Signals.
The BrainLink project offers educational materials focusing on current neuroscience issues with the goal of promoting a deeper understanding of how the nervous system works and why the brain makes each individual special while conveying the excitement of "doing science" among upper elementary and middle school students. Project materials engage students and their families in neuroscience issues as they learn fundamental physical and neuroscience concepts and acquire problem-solving and decision making skills. Each BrainLink unit targets a major neuroscience topic and consists of a colorful science Adventures storybook, a comprehensive Teacher's Guide to hands-on activities in science and mathematics, a Reading Link language arts supplement, and a fun and informative Explorations mini-magazine for students to use with their families at home or in the classroom. This issue offers a unique approach to learning how the senses work, including visual illusions and how the brain processes sensory information. (ASK)
