Lesson Plans

Name Description
Brain Regions In Action

After a lecture, students will work in groups to create concept maps to describe the structure of the brain and give everyday examples of the function of each part.

This resource is aligned with required Biology EOC benchmark SC.912.L.14.26. This lesson plan goes beyond the content and can be used to reinforce understanding of the brain functions, not just location of the main brain regions. It may also be aligned to the Anatomy and Physiology standard.

Brain Power

Students will learn the different regions and lobes of the brain by making a 3D model.

Edible Brain

This resource gives students the opportunity to inquire about the major components of the human brain, research the major components of the brain and then create a yummy model of the brain. The variety of strategies presented in this resource keeps students engaged while learning to identify parts of the brain.
