In this biology instructional activity, students examine the internal functions of the human body while considering the factors needed to explain the physiological reactions.
Travel Brochure of the Body Systems
Young scholars 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.
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.
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.
The Nervous System and Drugs
"The Nervous System & Drugs" is a collection of twenty-five short-answer questions pertaining to the human nervous system and how it reacts to various chemicals. Though designed as a chapter reading guide, not all biology texts have a chapter that specifically addresses this topic. This resource may be most useful to you as a note-taking worksheet for your biology or health class when you teach about the effect of drugs on the nervous system.
Acid/ Base Homeostasis Part 4
In this biology worksheet, students review in depth curriculum content concerning the human body and the effects of external factors while considering internal functions.
Prescription Drug Abuse Series "Changes for Life"
Young scholars discover the affects of prescription drug abuse. In this drug awareness activity, students use a scripted series of scenes for a play to understand facts and data concerning addiction in individuals and society. This activity includes a project an assessment, web resources, and worksheets.
The Domino Effect
Students model the transmission of neural impulses with dominoes. In this nervous system activity, 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.
How Inhalant Abuse Damages the Brain
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.
Anatomy of the Brain
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.
Brain Awareness Week
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.
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.
Experimentation with Teratogens on Zebrafish
Learners 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.
Chapter 8/8a Worksheet and Reading Guide-The Nervous System and Drugs
In this nervous system worksheet, students answer a series of questions about the nervous system and the effects of drugs on it. Students define four divisions of the nervous system, including the central, peripheral, somatic, and autonomic systems. They describe the functions of 6 parts of the brain. Students define a drug and tell ways different types of drugs affect the brain. The worksheet has 22 short essay questions.
Fifth graders study the components and function of the nervous system. They investigate how engineers design biomedical equipment to assist the nervous system and explain how the five senses are affected during spaceflight.
How We Learn About the Brain: Teaching the Infant Brain
Students describe the development of an infant from conception to birth. For this biology lesson, students discover how a child's brain develop. They explain how children acquire motor and cognitive skills.
Body Systems Unit
Second graders complete a unit of lessons on the body systems. They watch the video, Magic Schoolbus Inside the Human Body, trace their bodies and construct the systems on the tracing, simulate the digestive system, and participate in various demonstrations.
Students construct a neuron. They investigate dendrites and axons. They explain the function of each structure within the neuron.
The Nervous System
In this nervous system worksheet, students review the structure and function of neurons and how impulses are transmitted. Students label the parts of the brain and review the function of these parts. This worksheet has 12 fill in the blank and 14 matching questions.
