This is a 60+ slide PowerPoint presentation with several built-in video, audio, and academic links. Worksheet and links to NPR Interview with former NFL Players is also provided.
The PowerPoint presentation discusses the skull and its important role in protecting the brain. The protective layers just above the brain and are discussed with visuals. A neat demonstration shows the importance of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). A teacher places a raw egg in a bottle with lid and without any fluid (water). Teacher shakes the bottle and the egg breaks easily. Teacher repeats but this time adds fluid (water) and the egg is not damaged. This shows the importance of CSF fluid and sets up TBI Traumatic Brain Injury Well. TBI is discussed in a step by step process. Some slides discuss the importance of wearing seatbelts and helmets. A video link shows the impact of a crash test dummy with and without a seatbelt. An emotional link to a story of a teenager who is dealing with TBI is provided (just a few minutes). Many visuals of collisions and sports are provided with sound effects.
A link is provided to an NPR interview with former NFL Player Sean Morey from the Pittsburgh Steelers. Students can listen to the interview or read the interview. Teacher can copy and paste the FULL STORY. Link is enclosed. A worksheet is also provided that has the students answer WHO?, What Symptoms? Why is this happening? and Is this worth the Risk (Opinion)? The discussions that emerged from this lesson were great and the lesson may go longer then expected. This lesson is one small part of my skeletal system lesson and Human Body Systems Unit that I offer on TpT.
Note: Actual product is a .pptx (PowerPoint) and word document. The preview is a .pdf. Simply clicking the link in the PowerPoint will take the class to those videos. This product can also be edited by teacher if desired.
