Brain Facts for Elementary Ages
The cerebellum is the “doing center” of the brain. In the male brain, it tends to be larger. This may be one reason boys tend to be more physically active and have a bit less impulse control. Sometimes we find a boy getting into trouble at school (and at home) because he “just can’t sit still!” He may just be responding to his biology. More movement in the classroom and out will be a big help for elementary age students (for both boys and girls)!
