How does the brain work

Module Overview

Originated by Akbal Koar

Every animal – mammal, bird, reptile, fish and amphibian has a brain. But the human brain is unique. Although it’s not the largest organ, it gives us the power to speak, imagine and problem solve. It is truly an amazing organ. The scientific study of the brain and nervous system is called neuroscience or neurobiology. The field of neuroscience is so vast – and the brain and nervous system are so complex — this module starts with the basic and provides an overview of this complicated organ. The intention is that students can use the information to help them understand themselves a little better.

We will explore

  • A brief overview of the brain
  • What does the brain do?
  • How the brain shares information
  • A look at neurons
  • Exploring interesting facts about neurons

Our programmes include a range of learning materials to support both teachers and students in the classroom. Content wise, each module is different but some components are common to all to provide assessment tools for teachers and familiar references for students.

This module includes

  • Lesson plan
  • PowerPoint presentation
  • Observation of thoughts worksheet
  • Reflection of thoughts worksheet
  • Teacher assessment

We believe that some topics are approached more powerfully by bringing in animation. That is why some of the topics have videos to illustrate the learning points
