The 8th grade has spent this quarter studying the brain in health class. They have worked hard learning the functions of the different lobes, created neurons out of pipe cleaners and created imaginary animal brains out of Play Doh. The class learned about brain injuries and studied the concussion tragedies that occurred in the NFL. The quarter culminated today with students being charged with the task of creating a contraption that would keep a brain – or raw egg – safe from a two story fall. Creativity was at an all time high and we are happy that most brains survived!
