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!
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.
Young scholars investigate the nervous system.  In this anatomy lesson, students identify and define vocabulary related to the nervous system. Young scholars role play the parts of a nervous system and perform an experiment measuring and comparing their right and left hand reaction time.
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. 
In this nervous system worksheet, high schoolers answer thirty short answer questions about the structures and functions of the nervous system and its subsystems.
Seventh graders create a brace map on the parts and functions of the nervous system. In this life science lesson, 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.
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.
In this nervous system activity, 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.
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. 
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.
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
Middle schoolers 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. Middle schoolers complete a brace map on the parts and functions of the 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.
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.
Multiple choice, fill-in-the-blank, short answer, and matching questions are all here in a multi-page worksheet 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. 
Words that have to do with the nervous system are the focus of this word search. After finding 11 sets of words, learners must put those words into alphabetical order. This extra activity means that this word search has a little more educational value than most.
In this anatomy worksheet, students label the autonomic nervous system. Students focus on the sympathetic division of the system. The locations along the spine are linked with pictures of the organs.
In this health worksheet, students complete the crossword puzzle based upon the theme of the nervous system and its interaction with the senses.
In this biology activity, students find the words that define the workings of the nervous system. The answers are found at the bottom of the page.
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.
