Brain Awareness Week: Handouts & Resources

The Dana Foundation (featured in the 09-25-2015 Scout Report), a private philanthropic organization dedicated to understanding the brain and health, sponsors Brain Awareness Week every March. It also provides this repository of handouts and resources for educators, students, kids, and adults to learn more about brain science. For instance, middle schoolers can read a fact sheet to learn how exercise affects the brain and then complete a brain health word scramble puzzle. Older visitors might benefit from reading the pamphlet "Successful Aging & Your Brain." These and other Fact Sheets, Puzzles, lesson plans (under Resources for Educators), and more can be found by scrolling from the page linked above or using the drop down menu labeled "In This Section." For each category, it is easy to navigate through popular resources by clicking on the left or right arrow buttons provided. Users can also click the "View All" button on the left side of the page which directs to a search page, where resources can be filtered by audience (e.g., educators, grades K-5, or university students), type (e.g., puzzles, brain basics, or fact sheets), and language (available in English, German, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, or French). This page also offers readers a keyword search feature to explore the more than 150 resources available. All resources are available for download as PDFs, for convenient printing and use in science classrooms or as summer activities for kids.
