Brain Power: Grades 2-3


The activities listed below provide a link to other areas in the curriculum. These activities also make use of the trading cards included in the module.

  1. Divide the group into pairs. Make copies of the trading cards and give each pair a set. Have them look at the scientists shown and imagine what a typical day would be like for each one. Students also can think about the differences and similarities among the scientists.
  2. Divide the class into groups of five or six. Have the groups draw a large picture of what they have learned about scientific inquiry. Or students could pretend that they are reporters for the local newspaper assigned to describe scientific inquiry. Individually or in pairs, students can either write or draw their findings.
  3. Have students draw a picture of what they think the brain looks like.
  4. Read Bartholomew and the Oobleck, by Dr. Seuss, to the class.
