Neuroscience for Kids has illustrations showing the place of the human brain within the body's nervous system, muscles and cell bodies within the central nervous system, and divisions of the nervous system, such as the Telencephalon, Diencephalon, Mesencephalon, Metencephalon and Myelencephalon. The website then provides profiles of different brain parts, such as the cerebral context, cerebellum, hypothalamus, thalamus and brain stem. It also provides a chart showing the brain's structures within the context of the nervous system as a whole.

Duckster's Biology for Kids section also has illustrations showing the brain's corpus callosum and other major parts. The Your Brain and Nervous System page on the Kids Health website gives short entries on major brain points. The page also has links to accompanying quizzes, activities and word finders on the subject.

Enchanted Learning has an outline of parts of the occipital lobe, parietal lobe, temporal lobe, right hemisphere and the left hemisphere.
