Now that you’ve learned about the different regions of the brain and what they do, I want you to start thinking about how your brain and my brain might be different. I want you to name a lobe of the brain that you think might be different in teen brains and adult brains and give a reason why you think that.
For example (I’ll use my cats): I think that my cats’ cerebellum and brainstem are smaller (less developed) than mine (relative in size to the rest of the brain) because sometimes they are really clumsy and fall off of things and that part of the brain controls movement.
So think about how teenagers and adults act differently and make a possible connection to differences in brain development!
Post something that stood out for you from today’s talk with Kaija. It could be something you learned, a question that came to you after the talk, something you found really important, etc. If you don’t want to post it publically you can email it to Jennifer.
How does it make you feel when you read about the disparities (differences) between groups when it comes to the number of Covid-19 cases and deaths? Dig down a little bit and write at least three sentences.
How has COVID-19 impacted you or your family? How has COVID-19 impacted your community? (These are the last questions on the Peardeck slide show. If you have answered on there just copy your answers on to here. If you haven’t answered on the slide answering on here will count for both.)
