Students develop a deeper understanding of the brain. In this neuro-anatomyl lesson plan, students will use simple diagrams to understand the brain and will progress to more complex diagrams  as they gain understanding.
In this biology instructional activity, students examine the internal functions of the human body while considering the factors needed to explain the physiological reactions.
Students record observations and create drawings and models of anatomy using their five senses. They describe the structures of a neuron and analyze each of their functions. They compare and contrast the typical structural features of a general somatic cell to that of the specialized structures of the neuron.
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. 
Students identify structures of the brain, and neurons and analyze their functions.  In this nervous system lesson students create drawings and models of anatomy.
Young scholars explore human anatomy by completing a quiz. For this brain lesson, students read assigned text which discusses the different elements of the human brain and how they are used in everyday experiences. Young scholars 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.
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.
Students investigate the changes in escape behavior in Madagascar Hissing Cockroahes when their sensory apparatus is removed. They use puffs of air at differnt angles to simulate a predator's approach then collect and analyze data on the escape behavior produced.
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.
High schoolers 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.
Budding artists study the history and significance behind ancient mosaics and mosaic murals. They study multiple examples of ancient mosaics, sketch a design, and use clay tiles to create thoughtful mosaics of their own. 
In this biology worksheet, high schoolers examine the internal functions of the human body while considering the factors needed to explain the physiological reactions.
In this biology worksheet, high schoolers examine the internal functions of the human body while considering the factors needed to explain the physiological reactions.
In this biology worksheet, learners examine the passage of biochemical signals across the synapse to the receiving the dendrite.
In this biology worksheet, students examine the brain center and how it controls the operation of respiration and interacts with the upper respiratory system.
In this brain worksheet, students read about the brain, its four parts, and their functions, and answer comprehension questions. In this fill in the blank and true and false worksheet, students answer thirteen questions.
Students model the transmission of neural impulses with dominoes. In this nervous system instructional 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 interview a hero. For this heroes lesson, students read Number the Stars to begin a discussion about heroes and then create mind maps on each character. Students pick a local hero and interview them and then write a personal reflection.
In this animal behavior instructional activity, students complete a 50 multiple choice question review quiz on how animals respond to certain stimuli.
