Young scholars observe and create artistic representations, technological images, and scientific diagrams. They explore the five senses, the structure and function of the corresponding organs, and how the senses are connected to the human brain.
In this biology worksheet, students examine the biochemistry of transmitting signals across the neuron to another receiving dendrite.
Second graders learn about the human body. In this biology lesson plan, 2nd graders will begin with the basics of understanding charts and graphs and progress into units that cover the body systems, and mental and emotional health. Students will learn how their daily choices effect their bodies.
Fifth graders focus on the various types of fish living in different water environments. In groups, they research the different methods used to fish and participate in experiments to determine the effects of mercury on fish, the environment and the people who consume the food. They take field trips to aquatic environments and share their findings with the class on what might happen if the environment is not taken care of.
In this biology worksheet, students examine the internal functions of the human body while considering the factors needed to explain the physiological reactions.
In this biology worksheet, students examine the passage of biochemical signals across the synapse to the receiving the dendrite.
Students examine the hierarchical organization of the brain, neuron, and synapse; explain the sequence of events involved in communication at the synapse; and that synaptic transmission involves neurotransmitters.
Students review body systems and their functions. As a representative of the Duodenum Dynamics Ad Agency, they create a travel brochure for the Anatomy Travel Bureau.
Seventh graders examine the role the nervous system plays in our bodies.  For this nervouse system lesson students complete a fact or fiction game then research on the Internet if the facts are true or not.
Students discuss the nervous system and its pathology. They are then able to explain what neural physiology is. They use this game to further help them to develop clear meaning of the nervous system.
Find out just how enticing learning about neurons can be by creating models with sugar cookies, icing, and candy. With great background information for you and an easy procedure for the kids, studying cells has never been more fun or mouth-watering! Be sure to emphasize that your microbiologists use correct vocabulary as they are building their tantalizing models, lest they refer to mitochondria as M & Ms on their tests. 
Students discover the affects of prescription drug abuse. In this drug awareness lesson, students use a scripted series of scenes for a play to understand facts and data concerning addiction in individuals and society. This lesson includes a project an assessment, web resources, and worksheets.
In this biology activity, students review in depth curriculum content concerning the human body and the effects of external factors while considering internal functions.
Students model the transmission of neural impulses with dominoes. For this nervous system lesson, students construct a device with dominoes. They use the device to model the way a nerve impulse is propagated from dendrite to axon.
Students read article, "Toxic Transmission" and discuss technology pollution, specifically cell phone pollution and its ripple effects in other parts of the world.
In this inhalant abuse worksheet, students read about a study conducted on inhalant abusers and their brains. Students read about the results of the study and the findings. They answer 2 questions about the study and indicate the areas of the brain affected by the inhalants and how the scientists came to conclusions about the changes in the brains of the inhalant users.
Students explore human anatomy by completing a quiz. In this brain lesson, students read assigned text which discusses the different elements of the human brain and how they are used in everyday experiences. Students answer a multiple choice quiz on brain anatomy. 
Students explore the brain. In this science lesson, students create a model of the brain and discuss steps taken in order to protect the brain. Students design a container that would protect the brain from injury. Students discuss the parts of the nervous system and view a neuron.
In 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.
Students compare mitosis and meiosis with regard to chromosome number in parent cells versus daughter cells, types of cells produced, total number of cells produced, and the number of divisions. In groups, identify and differentiate the major characteristics of vertebrate development and explain the relationships among the number of eggs, methods of fertilization, and rates of embryonic development as related to species survival.
