As beginning biologists learn about neurons, they can use this resource to document important information. Seventeen questions, written as a reading guide, make up a cohesive overview of the nerve cell. The resource does not cover the rest of the nervous system, however, so you will want to use this as a supplement to your curriculum.
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.
