Today was a rather uneventful day..... so I had some time to upload pics of our project to date. I will try to keep up with it as I go along from now on..... please bear with me :)
Cover... all three boys have the same - just with their name on it.... not too creative am I?
Daxter's Regions of the Brain Coloring - his brothers colored their own but their creative tendencies shone through and the lines were alas not stayed within.
I absolutely love these diagrams! They are layered to show each section of the skull and brain..... we didn't color this one first like we were supposed to.... oops.
This is the Systems of the Body Diagram that Daxter colored.... I colored one for Ratchet too but I like Daxter's better :) The layered diagrams are awesome learning tools.... I need to find more!
This is a diagram of a Neuron that Daxter drew...... he labelled it and copied the definition below.
This is Halo's dot-to-dot of the brain :) Not too techinical.
This is Ratchet's Systems of The Body Labelling..... he praticed cutting skills and gluing. Gluing is a VERY important skill to learn - otherwise it gets VERY messy!
Nerve Necklace - each boy made one and wore it for all of 3 seconds... they are hanging on our bulletin board now.
Brain Origami.... formerly known as a "cootie catcher" (by me anyway!)
Parts of the Brain Cards - inside and outside the brain... the cut-out cards are placed over the brain to highlight specific areas... the senses etc.
All sorts of flashcards.......for the younger two.... laminated for durability (I would laminate twice if I could) - organs, body parts, large organ cards, cells
Well, that's it so far.... hope it gives you some ideas.
The "Duck and Cover" Technique......
