What is pinkish gray on the outside, yellowish white on the inside, wrinkled and has the consistency of soft ice cream? It’s the human brain! How can something so squishy and convoluted be so special? And what makes the human brain different from all other brains? At only three pounds, it is not the biggest; the brains of both a whale (17 lbs) and an elephant (12.5lbs) are larger and heavier. But, the human brain is very large when compared to our total body size and unique because of its wrinkled and folded surface. When all those wrinkles are smoothed out, there’s a lot of space for thinking, language, and other intelligent behaviors. Explore the amazing human brain with the activities in this kit.
