BRAIN POWER

Brain

Did you know?

    Your brain’s:
  • Right side controls your body’s left side.
  • Left side controls your body’s right side. Cool, huh?!
  • 77% water – that’s what your brain is made of! Drink lots of water to keep it feeling good.

    Your brain weighs:
  • At birth - almost 1 pound, about the same as a full reusable water bottle.
  • Right now - about 2 pounds, about the same as a water bottle and empty backpack.
  • When you grow up - about 3 pounds, about the same as a water bottle, backpack, baseball, badminton racket and birdie, swim goggles and a hockey puck.

See why you gotta move? Your brain needs oxygen to grow and keep getting smarter!
