Too many lectures and notes in your anatomy class? This activity is a great no-prep solution that allows students to make models of neuron structure including dendrites, axons, myelin sheath, and Nodes of Ranvier. Teacher directions, student worksheets, and doodle notes for background are all included.
Models are highly encouraged by NGSS due to the greater student comprehension and retention of material. This activity links structures and functions while maintaining student interest through hands-on instruction and modeling.
Terms addressed: neuron, cell body, axon, Nodes of Ranvier, Schwann cell,
myelin sheath, dendrites, nerve impulse
Included in this resource:
1 page of teacher directions w/ possible adaptations for advanced students
