Body, Senses, & the Brain
This introductory human body unit takes the perspective that we can think about our bodies as being like a machine. We have parts for moving around, sensors, and a built-in computer. Students explore their senses and consider how the information we process helps us understand and react to our environment.
Each week we will be doing someone fun and exciting related to science, technology, engineering and/or math (STEM). Please check out the STEMtastic page on this website for more info and pictures of what we have been doing!
