Science in P4

We were learning a lot about the human body. We talked about our skin and its functions. We used our fingerprints to create pictures of different insects, animals and fruit.

Mrs Jadid taught us about our brain. We found out that the brain is where we do our thinking. All our senses are tied into our brain, allowing us to experience the outside world. We remember, have emotions, solve problems, worry about stuff, dream about the future, and control our bodies in our brain. For such an awesome organ, the brain doesn’t look like much. It’s a ball of grey wrinkled tissue about the size of two of your fists put together. The brain sits in our hard, thick skull with membranes and fluid around it to protect it.
