North Star Students Go Inside the Brain

Schoolwide project has students teaching and learning from one another.

When teachers at North Star Elementary wanted to teach about the brain they left it up to the students.  Fourth and fifth grade students did the research and designed an interactive presentation that took up one whole hallway at the school.

The students put their talents to the test, designing interactive exhibits of the left and right hemispheres, the brains stem and emotions (using emoticons to represent).  The hands-on lesson allowed the students to go deeper into the learning and to include all of the school in the activity, said fourth grade teacher Steven Lamb who initiated the project.

KOB Channel 4’s Erica Zucco featured the story on the morning news.  Fourth grade student Mahlet Habteyes provided a tour of the exhibit, and even got a shot at being a reporter.
