Really Dumb



A brain is like a computer inside your head! It helps you think, remember, and learn. It helps you decide what to do and how to act. Your brain has billions of cells called neurons that work together to help your body and mind do amazing things. For example, your brain helps you control how your muscles move when you walk and talk. It stores memories so you can remember things like your friends’ birthdays and the capital of your state. It also helps you to learn new things like how to play a game or speak a new language. Here’s a fun fact: The brain is the most active organ in your body and uses a lot of energy – about 20% of your body’s energy!
