In Kakapo class we have been learning all about the brain. Today we got into groups. Each group was given a different part of the brain to focus on. Cerebrum, cerebellum, brain stem, amygdala and the temporal/occipital lobes.
Each group had to read through and choose the information that related to 'their' part of the brain. After identifying this information the groups dicussed which information was important. They conducted further research to answer any questions they had or anything that they may not have understood.
THEN... Mrs Cutler gave each group playdough. Each group had a different colour. The task was to use the playdough to create their part of the brain into a 3D model. For this each group had to collaborate further to check position, scale and to join them up to build our brain.
