Teaching With the Wearable
1. Before children put on their Brain Hats, find out what they knowabout the brain. Ask questions such as, “Where is your brain?” and “What does your brain do?” Explain that just like a computer, the brain receives and stores information through the eyes, ears, mouth, skin, and other parts of the body. It receives information about what goes on inside and outside the body. Then it sends messages to parts of the body and tells them what to do. The brain helps us walk and talk, eat and breathe, think, dream, have feelings, and remember.
2. Help children find the word sight which is printed on one side of the Brain Hat. Ask them to name the part of the body the brain works with to help us see. (eyes) Record this information on a sheet of chart paper.

4. Invite students to don their Brain Hats. Then, starting with the first words on the chart (touch, skin, for example), ask children to name things that we can do thanks to that part of our brain. (feel a soft kitten, warmth of a hot day, a scratchy sweater, a rough rock, and so on)…
