Fourth-graders in Reading Elementary School in Centerville, Utah, learn about the importance of the brain by examining sheep brains in class. Along with opportunities to hold the specimens during a weeklong lesson, students learned about the parts of the brain and the sections that control emotions and learning in humans. "I think there's nothing better than a hands-on activity, especially something that's unique because they really pay attention when we're learning about our brains," teacher Peggy Hyde said.
