Brain Race introduces students to functions of the spinal cord and brain. Students travel around a mat in the shape of the spinal cord and brain, picking up and losing Bio-Bucks. Brain Race is a great introduction to a unit on the nervous system. It also can be used to introduce various functions of the specific lobes of the cerebrum, cerebellum, and brain stem or to stimulate discussion on what each area of the brain does.
