Reflection: Connection to Prior Knowledge Thinking Inside the Box (Exploring the Internal Anatomy of the Brain)! - Section 5: Extend


             In order to access the distinct white and grey matter regions, students should make either a horizontal cut to sever a fraction of the the frontal lobe or make a longitudinal cut along one hemisphere. Additionally, and to personalize this experience more, you can have students produce a diagram of their cross sections and label them (structure and function) as opposed to labeling the the diagram directly. It connected the content of the video, the model and physical verbiage for students very well. The students seem to like it, as well as it kept them engaged with their sheep brains.
