Smarter than any computer and more complex than anything known to man, the human brain is an unfathomable treasure–the perfect topic to explore with curious children!

In this study, your child will investigate different parts of the brain each day, learning what each part does, a bit about how it works, and what jobs it does for her body. She will learn about the amazing capacity of our brain–for memory, thought processing, and body control. Your child will meet one amazing person each day–the Brainiac of the Day! From Einstein to Ben Carson, MD, these people demonstrate just how much can be accomplished when the mind is put to work.

Get ready for an unforgettable learning adventure into the world of the human brain. There will be science discoveries, such as learning about the way that nerve signals are transmitted at speeds of over 150 miles per hour, and neurons communicate without ever touching. Discovering how important it is to exercise and eat right to help your brain, as well as how the left side of a brain controls the right side of your body, and that there are over 100 billion neurons in a human brain–these things are always fascinating and memorable. Take some time to explore with them–take plenty of pictures, explore the learning links and look and see what God has created!

Discover the Brain, part of the Discover the Human Body collection in the Download N Go series for grades K - 4. Covering science, history, geography, and much more, this new series of discovery is sure to be a hit!

Here’s what homeschooling parents are saying about Discover the Brain:

"Amanda Bennett and her team have once again done an amazing job of putting together a great unit study! Discover the Brain . . . is a fascinating way to discovering the brain. Science, history, Bible, art, writing, and more are all wrapped up right here in this one-week DNG unit study. You will be amazed at how much is in this study!

In just one week you will discover a wealth of information about your brain. This study includes learning the function of the brain, the parts of the brain, how to keep your brain healthy, and a "Brainiac from History". And if that wasn’t enough, Amanda has included a fun "Build a Brain" section, Deeper Discovery, and LOTS of extra resources to help enhance this already great study! Each day gives an opportunity to work on a lapbook to have after the week is over, which is an awesome memory and reference for the future.

What we love most about Amanda’s unit studies is the way she uses Scripture throughout the study. If you love the Bible, Discover the Brain will help you connect your brain to the Bible. I am thankful that my kids are not only learning about the brain but how God and His Word is in all of it! I can’t say enough about this wonderful DNG, Discover the Brain. Don’t just take my word for it, see for yourself all the wealth of information inside this one week study!"

—Cantina Camp, Unionville, TN

"Think, think, think . . . think about how cool it will be to learn all about your amazing brain! In this unit study children will learn all about the brain and how magnificent it is. Our brains are so very special and are one of the most complex things known to man. Researchers are still not fully sure how the brain works and probably never will because the brain is perfect in every way because it was created by God.

In this fabulous 5-day unit study children will explore the brain in detail, learn about why we need one and learn all of the various parts that make up the brain including the cerebrum, cerebellum and brain stem. There are so many fun aspects to this unit study including, brain exercises, brain tips and brainiac bios. There are also silly riddles and fabulous quotes like this one, “The brain is like a muscle. When it is in use we feel very good.” —Carl Sagan. As with all of the unit studies by Amanda Bennett there are recommended books, apps, activities and more.

I will admit it, there are things in this lapbook that I didn't know. Like did you know that there are more brain cells in your brain than people in the world? Pretty cool, huh?

Unit Studies by Amanda Bennett has done it again and created a spectacular, all encompassing curriculum that makes learning fun and interesting for both kids and adults. You and your family will have fun racking your brains and noodling your way through this one."

—Kathy Balman, Roswell, GA

"One of the reasons I love Unit Studies by Amanda Bennett is their adaptability for children in a wide range of ages. That being said, when I heard about this unit study on the brain, I immediately thought, 'My kids {6.5 and 4.5} aren't old enough for that!'

I was so wrong.

Discover the Brain is an amazing resource for walking with your children through the world of a very complex organ in the most fun ways! You're not just getting a lesson plan--you're getting pages and pages of information, resources, videos, activities, and much more! There are even lapbooking materials included!

My boys are particularly fond of the videos and pictures linked to in the study, as they are definitely visual learners. I think they also love the novelty of anything on the computer! Learners of all types will find something to love in this unit as there are plenty of writing, reading, and hands-on activities.

I love the references to Scripture and God. I'm not sure how anyone could explain the brain without pointing to our Creator, but many try to leave Him out. I applaud Amanda for creating this wonderful lesson combining science and God!

Discover the Brain covers everything from the parts and functions of the brain to keeping it safe. Your kids will be fascinated and have a blast with this unit study!

—Erin Mohring, Omaha, NE

"As a mother how many times have you heard, “This algebra is making me brain-dead,” or “My mind can’t memorize all these verses.” Have you ever caught yourself saying this, “Don’t stick that fork in the light socket! Are you out of your mind?”

As you may have guessed, the common link in all these infamous household quotes is the brain. As homeschoolers we use our amazing brains all the time whether memorizing scripture, history dates or even spelling words. But how this amazing brain of ours works is mind-boggling. Thankfully, Amanda Bennett’s unit study, Discover the Brain, makes learning about the magnificent mind both fun and enlightening.

We started by making a salt dough brain, which not only showed us what a brain looks like, but reinforced mathematic skills such as measuring, and art skills such as sculpting and painting. Each day of the unit study was filled with labeling different parts of the “dough” brain as well as learning vocabulary and spelling. We were thankful for the many helpful tips on how to protect our brain from injury with helmets and pool safety. We were astounded by the “brainiacs” Solomon, Thomas Edison, and Ben Carson and found it interesting that even though they had amazingly gifted minds they still needed to work hard to reach their goals. Seeing these individuals rise above by thinking out of the box and learning on their own really resonated with how we learn as homeschoolers.

Amanda does a great job of also showing us that God created our brains different from all other creatures in creation. He created us in His image. I highly recommend this unit study because it will blow your mind!"

—Sarah Benson, Conway, AR
