This presentation provides advice and examples from practice for tutors of primary science for trainee teachers. It shows how learning about the brain can be integrated into a workshop about body systems (nervous, cardiovascular, skeletal) so that the brain is seen as an interconnected part of the whole body.

This resource is an outcome of a wider project: Enhancing the Learning Sciences in Initial Teacher Education.
