Sarah Rhine’s AP Psychology class decided to take a break from writing notes and engage in a hands on activity that involved crafting.

The class created neurons out of all different materials, including pipe cleaners, puff balls, and sequins. The activity was used to help the students learn a deeper understanding of the neuron, and even piece together the different workings and functions of each part.

“Students don’t often get to create what they’re learning about in class and I like when they get opportunities to,” AP Psychology teacher Mrs. Rhine said.

The class worked in their groups, which are called families, to piece together their neurons to make a full cycle. “The crafting was super fun, and if I’m being honest, it was more helpful than I thought it would be. It was also fun to work with the other kids in the class,” junior Lauren Loss said.  

The hands-on activity allowed for students to work together, and are on display in G-hall.
