WHEN YOU LEARN YOU LITERALLY BUILD UP YOUR BRAIN
MAKING IT SMARTER AND STRONGER
Here’s a short summary of our last Brainology® class.
First of all, some of our classmates have shared* with us the values that are most important to them.
It was really great to know about what we believe in* and what really matters* in our lives.
I think we are really lucky to have people with these values in our classroom.
I’m sure these values will really help our learning.
I really hope that we’ll be able to bring* these values to our work this year.
Then we moved to another activity: “Information Search”.
In this activity we made some hypotheses about our brain, and tried to answer the following questions:
- How much energy does your brain use?
- Would your brain feel pain if you could pinch it?
- What foods keep our brain healthy*?
- What is the difference between “Voluntary” and “Involuntary”?
- How can you help yourself pay attention?
- How does your brain receive information?
- How much does your brain weigh*?
- How many hours of sleep do teenagers need* each night?
Finally we’ve read through our homework assignment: How is my brain performing* today?
Thanks to this homework you are going to:
- rate* your food and sleep habits*
- make hypotheses* about how food and sleep can affect* your brain performance*
During our next Brainobogy® class, we're going to verify all of our hypotheses with the help of Doctor Cerebrus and his Lab!
