Last week we had a blast in our Social Thinking Groups. One of the lessons in the SuperFlex programs is the gelatin brain activity!
This particular Social Thinking Lesson has been our favorite so far!
Step one: mix up jello (I used peach), fat free evaporated milk, water and food coloring. This created the first panic moment. I don’t know why my jell-o foamed like this, but it ended up ok! Put the mold in the fridge overnight!
In the morning it looked great! The kids loved ‘feeling’ the brain and we spent a lot of time talking about the flexibility of our brain.
My poor brain experienced a TBI at a red light. After losing part of his temporal lobe, he was never the same!
The social thinking curriculum for this lesson focused on the functions of the brain. The brain controls the physical, social, and school abilities of students. The curriculum lists activities to write on the slips of paper. I used a knife to slice into the brain and then stuck the papers in.
Here is the mold I used! Happy FLEXIBLE Thinking!

I got lucky and found a brain mold at our local Meijer store in the halloween section :-). I also found some flexible little brains at the Dollar Tree in their halloween section!
