Are you looking for a little help covering the nervous system in your middle school science class?
This complete unit will save you lots of time and energy!
This unit is on the nervous system, the brain, and how sensory receptors receive information and convert it to an electrochemical signal that is sent through the nervous system to the brain.
Once the signal gets to the brain it is processed and the brain may send a signal to tell the body how to respond or store the information as memory.
Students learn how animals process information and send it to their brains in different ways.
This is a large unit with a variety of activities!
It includes three PowerPoint slideshows, reading passages, response pages, a lab, interactive notebook inserts, a quiz, and answer keys for everything!
