Classroom management is a very large part of what we do every day as science teachers, and the first few minutes of a class period can be somewhat chaotic. You can turn this chaotic time at the beginning of your class into an organized time of meaningful learning.
Included in this product:
- 37 warm-up or bell-ringer activities (37 pages)
- Complete answer keys (37 Teacher Answer Pages)
- 5-page Teacher Guide
- Editable Template for creating your own warm-ups.
- Editable templates for starting your own interactive, warm up notebooks.
Please Note: These warm-ups are designed to take 5-7 minutes to complete. They are used for review and reinforcement of key concepts, but are not intended to be used as first-time instruction. Students will need prior instruction and/or textbook to complete these warm ups. This resource contains pages that can be used as warm ups, bell ringers, inserts for your interactive notebooks, homework assignments, or classwork.
This resource does not include teaching materials such as textbook readings, informational text readings, or a teaching PowerPoint.
The pages are printed landscape style. The pages look best if printed in color, but also look great if printed in black/white. Each activity is one-half page in size. Two identical warm-ups are printed per page in order to conserve paper. These half-page activities can be collected and quickly graded, or you might want to have your students keep a daily warm-up notebook. These warm-ups will make excellent additions to your interactive notebooks.
These warm up / interactive notebook pages are perfect for students in grades 8 - 12. The pages range in difficulty from very basic to more advanced, making these suitable for upper middle school, high school biology or anatomy and physiology classes.

The above titles will cover the following information:
- Introduction to the Nervous System: Structures found in the nervous system and their functions.
- Students will label the parts of the brain and describe the function of each part: Cerebrum, cerebral hemispheres, corpus callosum, meninges, cerebrospinal fluid, cerebellum, thalamus, hypothalamus, medulla oblongata, pituitary gland, pineal gland.
- The cerebrum: Two sides, corpus callosum, four lobes of each hemisphere, white matter and gray matter.
- Right brain vs Left Brain

- The brain stem: Upper brain stem, lower brain stem, limbic system, pons, medulla oblongata
- Protection of the brain: Meninges and cerebrospinal fluid.

- The Neuron: Students will label the neuron and describe the function of each part. Cell body, dendrites, axon, axon terminals, myelin sheath, Schwann cells, nodes of Ranvier, synapse. Students will draw and label the neuron. Direction of nerve impulse, target cells, reflexes.
- Membrane potential: Definition, how membrane potential is established, sodium potassium pumps, resting potential, action potentials, threshold, changes in membrane permeability.
- The synapse: neurotransmitters, enzymes, target cells.
- Sensory receptors, sense organs.
- The eye; cornea, iris, pupil, retina, vitreous humor, optic nerve, sclera, rods and cones. Students will label the eye and describe the function of each part.
- The Ear: Students will label the ear and describe the function of each part.
