This week we have been learning about the Nervous System. We watched a movie on kidshealth.org and were amazed at how important the brain is. Watch the movie here: http://kidshealth.org/PageManager.jsp?lic=1&article_set=59295&cat_id=20607
Here are some of our thoughts and understandings about The Brain.
The brain helps you move. It helps you play different types of games. It helps us think. It helps us learn writing. It helps you remember stuff. It helps you write. It helps you breathe. It helps you move in all sorts o ways. It helps you talk. It helps you read. It helps you with your problems. The nervous system tells us things are cold or hot. It gets messages from our five senses. The messages go up to our brain along the spinal cord.
The nervous system is made of the brain and the spinal cord. When we get a cut a message goes to our brain.
There are 100 billion nerve cells in the nervous system.
