CSI: GREEN Charter

The 7th and 8th grade GREEN Charter students in PLTW's Medical Detectives observed, explored, and dissected a sheep's brain!

There are many similarities between the sheep brain and the human brain.  Being able to locate important structures in the sheep brain helps with the  understanding of how structures are related to each other in the human brain.  During the course of the dissection, the students identified different parts of the brain in order to better able to appreciate the development of the human brain.
