Helping Children Understand 5 & 6: How We Learn; The Brain

A combined version of Helping Children Understand 5: How We Learn and Helping Children Understand 6: The Brain is available.
Helping Children Understand 5: How We Learn
Children are curious about all kinds of things, and in this program they learn about how they learn. They discover it takes much more that just "brains" to learn, people also use their senses, their bodies, and their desire for knowledge. Kids see that learning is a natural thing that can be a wonderful experience. And they can learn from all kinds of things, such as books, television, radio, from all kinds of people, such as relatives, teachers, librarians, and friends, and from all kinds of experiences, such as discussions, experiments and using instruments.
Helping Children Understand 6: The Brain
"Highly Recommended. This unique and succinct program is narrated by the voices of different children. The visuals, drawn by children, are clear and informative. The organization of information is clear and logical, and the topics are discussed in terms that young children will understand." -School Library Journal
Where is intelligence located? What are our brains made of? Are there machines that can think like us? These are the kind of questions children help children understand in this program. First, they learn that the brain is like a three-story house consisting of the spinal cord, the brain itself, and the cerebral cortex. Each are clearly explained. Then we see the brain is divided into two parts, two hemispheres, and is connected by millions of nerve cells or neurons. Neurons make thousands of exchanges per second, know as synapses, and the more that take place the better a person understands. 03/08DE PI 22 min.
