The Brain
By Brandi Waters
  

1     The brain is one of the most interesting parts of the human body. It is the command center for your entire body! Your brain tells your body how to move. It allows you to see, hear, smell, taste, and touch. It controls your emotions, too. It also forms memories. Because of your brain, you can remember how to ride your bicycle and what you did on your seventh birthday.
 
2     Your brain is a part of your nervous system. It works together with your nerves. Your brain gives and receives orders and your nerves carry the orders to other parts of your body.

3     Your brain is made up of five different parts. Each part does very different jobs. The largest part of your brain is called the cerebrum. It is where thinking takes place. When you use your imagination or solve a math problem, you use your cerebrum. The cerebrum also controls movements that you choose to control, like walking, jumping, or riding a bicycle. .....
