Hormones and Stress

As a more personal part of a unit on brain chemistry, your class discusses stressful situations and the body's response to them. They talk about how, while the reactions are initially helpful, some can be harmful to your health. Finally, they write about ways that stress can be minimized. The discussion and writing exercise is ideal for meeting middle school Next Generation Science Standards, and would be best used alongside other unit components.
