This one-page reading discusses Mike the Headless Chicken (Miracle Mike) who lived for 18 months after getting his head chopped off. It discusses how the brain stem and cerebellum, which were left connected, helped Mike to continue to live and function. Students find this reading to be quite captivating and it helps them to remember what the brain stem does. This is important in my AP Psychology class but this can be used in other classes as well as it is not specific.

There are two questions at the end with an answer key.

Works with Distance Learning! Comes as a Microsoft Doc, PDF, and Google Doc version. The link to the Google Doc version is in the key.
