The Nervous System
Are you doing some lessons on the nervous system? This word search might come in handy to help you teach some of the vocabulary associated with it. Learners must find ten words that have something to do with the nervous system. Then, they must underline the 13 mistakes present in a paragraph about a person going to medical school. Good all-around practice!
Exploring the Nervous System Through Disease and Injury
Students are introduced to the nervous system. In groups, they research the relationship between disease and injury and how it affects the nervous system. To end the lesson, they present their findings to the class and create a poster.
The Nervous System
Students investigate the nervous system. In this anatomy lesson, students identify and define vocabulary related to the nervous system. Students role play the parts of a nervous system and perform an experiment measuring and comparing their right and left hand reaction time.
Review for Strand 2A Test: Nervous System
Three pages containing 51 true and false questions make up this nervous system review. The major topics listed at the top of the test mention a film strip and a laboratory activity, but the questions appear to be answerable without having to have seen the film or participated in that particular lab. The content, however, is aimed at an advanced biology curriculum.
Tenth graders examine the nervous system and how it functions. In this nerve impulse lesson students explain how neurons transmit and the functions of the brain.
Nervous System Introductory Worksheet
In this nervous system worksheet, students answer thirty short answer questions about the structures and functions of the nervous system and its subsystems.
The Human Body-Nervous System
Seventh graders create a brace map on the parts and functions of the nervous system. In this life science activity, 7th graders explore different stations to study about the nervous system. They explain how this system works with other body systems to bring order to a complete organism.
The Amazing Nervous System
Seventh graders examine the role the nervous system plays in our bodies. In this nervouse system lesson students complete a fact or fiction game then research on the Internet if the facts are true or not.
For this nervous system worksheet, students list the levels of organization in a multicellular organism. Students match the organ system with its function. Students answer a variety of questions using their knowledge of the nervous system.
Nervous System Lesson Plan
Ninth graders study the nervous system and demonstrate reaction time. In this nervous system lesson plan students answer questions about the nervous system using a PowerPoint brain game then complete a lab.
The Central Nervous System
Fifth graders identify the parts of the nervous system and their five senses. They participate in activities with their classmates to test their knowledge of the nervous system. They complete a test to review the material.
Nervous System: Our Sense of Self
Students analyze the effects of damage to the nervous system by examining four fictitious patient cases. They discuss one case together and then individually write essays about the remaining cases
The Human Body: The Nervous System
Students discover the major organs in the nervous system, their functions and how they perform in relation to the remainder of the human body. Students work in groups at various learning stations: control muscles and tissue, control organs, control senses, and control thinking. Students complete a brace map on the parts and functions of the nervous system.
New! Drugs, Risks and the Nervous System
In cooperative groups, middle schoolers contemplate the probability of 18 different situations occurring. After they make predictions, they compare them to the actual risk factors. This eye-opening exercise demonstrates that the odds of problems related to drug use are greater than the odds of many other events. As part of a larger unit on brain chemistry, this can be used in your human body systems or in your health and controlled substance unit.
Multiple choice, fill-in-the-blank, short answer, and matching questions are all here in a multi-page learning exercise or quiz. While the formatting leaves a little to be desired, it would take just a few minutes to change the handout into a useful test or study guide. It covers several areas of physiology, but focuses mostly on the nervous system.
Amazing Nervous System
Students investigate the role of the nervous system in the human body. Students review task cards to determine if certain statements about the role of the human body's nervous systerm are fact or fiction, and then search provided Internet sites to check their answers.
Making Connections: Exploring Our Brains through the Five Senses
Students identify structures of the brain, and neurons and analyze their functions. In this nervous system lesson students create drawings and models of anatomy.
Study Jams! The Nervous System
Get your class thinking with animations of neurons in action and explanations of how stimuli is transported and processed. This film makes an ideal introduction or review of the nervous system. The parts of the brain and what they control are identified, and the different roles of the central and peripheral systems. For a fun homework assignment, have individuals watch the video at home and then take the quiz. They can print out their scores to turn in to you the following day.
Brain Awareness Week Lessons
Learners explore the human brain and nervous system. In this brain awareness lesson, students examine specific terms with regards to the human brain. Learners discover the brain's structure and function and how it functions as the body's control center. Students complete a multiple choice quiz on brain anatomy.
Coping with Changes
Students build on knowledge of brain and nervous system in order to write about how their nervous systems help them cope with change in environment. Students navigate online sites to explore different parts of brain and nervous system.
