Why Lesson Planet?
The highlight of this series is activitiy #4. Anatomy pupils examine slides of three unknown cells. With the function of the nervous system in mind, they consider the structure of each and try to guess which one is part of that system. In other activities, they examine the nervous system of earthworm and grasshopper specimens, or they study drawings of different animal nervous systems. The drawings unfortunately aren't included in this resource; however, they can be accessed through the National Science Teachers Association website.
