Lesson 2 in our unit study was about the brain. We added our “brains” from “My Body” book to our body models from the intro lesson.
We also learned about the spinal cord and nervous system. We enjoyed doing the experiment and coloring pages from “My First Human Body Book”.

We learned how the brain is the “computer” of the body and that it sends messages through the spinal cord and nervous. We played the “Telephone” game pretending that we were sending messages and receiving them back.
Here is a great video that we watched about how our brain and nervous system work. My kids loved the song and continued singing it as we worked!
