Put on your thinking cap!

So, we are learning about the brain. The girls loved putting their "thinking cap" on! You can print out one of these for yourself here. We played a lot of games with this cap and pointing out the different lobes that have different jobs. I think our favorite was learning that the saying, "You've got eyes in the back of your head" has a little truth to it. The statement that people have eyes in the back of their head may have a little truth to it. The occipital lobe, in the brain, is located in the back of the head. This lobe is responsible for controlling most vision. While we may not see out the back of our head, this back area in our brain interprets the images from our eyes.
