4th Grade Science Fair Project
This month we are featuring an exciting Science Fair Project
that utilizes Graphics-Toolbox to illustrate the findings of
this nine year old. Parents and classmates alike surrounded the board attracted by the eye catching graphics and then wanted to learn more about his research.
ARE YOU LEFT OR RIGHT BRAIN
In doing research for this project I learned that the left part of our body is controlled by the right half of our brain! The left half of our brain controls the right half of our body!
I think that more people are left brained than right brained because most of the people I know are more right dominant than left dominant. This means they use the left side of their brain a lot and that might mean the person uses their logical side more and their creative side less.

- Testing Left and Right Dominance Quiz
- Testing Left and Right Brain Quiz
1. Gave the Testing Left and Right Dominance Quiz to 25 people.
2. Gave Left and Right Brain Quiz to the same 25 people.
3. Compared each Left and Right Brain Quiz to the key
4. Sorted Left and Right Brain Quizzes into 3 groups (Left, Right, and Mixed)
5. Counted how many there were in each group
6. Wrote Left, Right, or Mixed on each persons Testing Left and Right Dominance Quiz
7. Noted how many people in each group were left handed.
After sorting the quizzes, I made many observations:
* I saw that there was the same amount of people that tested left and right brained -11 were in each group.
* 3 people were mixed - tested equally left and right brained.
* When I highlighted the 5 people that were left handed,
they were pretty equally divided in each group.
* People within a family all had different responses
* The people with the mixed brains were also the people with
a mixed body left and right dominance.
The reason left and right brain dominance people tied
was there are different people in the world and the world
would be pretty boring if everyone was logical or if everyone
was creative. In my research I didn't find any comparison
between left and right brain dominance and left and
right body dominance.
