Body Systems: Nervous System: FREE Brain Mold
Kraft Foods is giving away free brain molds (you pay $2.95 for shipping).
As previously mentioned, Education Innovations sells a brain mold with instructions for making a gelatin model the same size and mass as a human brain.
Educational Innovations model, but it's free! It could certainly be useful for pointing out the parts of the brain in a basic anatomy lesson. And, assuming you can find a bike helmet in which it fits appropriately, you could use it for a lesson in bike safety and the importance of helmets. (Drop one gelatin brain without a helmet and another in a helmet and compare the damage).
I've ordered a free one and will do some experimenting with it once it arrives. I'll keep you posted. In the meantime, go here to get yours.
