Red 8 "Building a Brain" Activity
Posted on 12/01/2017

Yesterday, 11/30/17, RED8 spent their day "building a brain" in Language Arts.

Students learned about how Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES) impact brain development and future health. Our takeaway was that, despite adversity, we can change the trajectory of our lives. We can also be compassionate, kind, and mindful of others' life challenges. Students were engaged, insightful, and willing to stretch their thinking beyond their own experiences. This lesson is part of a larger unit on resilience, compassion, and kindness toward others.
