Gillispie “Gem” of the Week

October 21, 2010

Recently, Grade 6 students visited the science lab to continue their study of the brain and how it relates to the type of learners they become. By carving watermelon "brains," the students became intimately familiar with the physical structure of our gray matter. The unit includes Gillispie's first-time use of the software-based Brainology self-assessment program.

Camila displays the brain she and her partner created.

Aidan and William get into the Halloween spirit a bit early by devouring their watermelon "brains." Who says learning can't be fun and satisfying?!
