  • Choose a difficulty level. The easy version shows outlines for each puzzle piece whereas the hard version only shows the perimeter of the brain
  • Get to work! Assemble the puzzle. Either glue the pieces to the paper for a keepsake or keep the pieces for recreating the puzzle later.

Discussion Points

  • Different areas of the brain are responsible for different functions. 
  • If a patient had damage in the very back of the brain, what function might be dysfunctional? (Answer: vision)
