Product Description
This reading satisfies standard MS-LS1-8/DCI LS1.D under information processing, where students are to "gather and synthesize information that sensory receptors respond to stimuli by sending messages to the brain for immediate behavior or storage as memories." Here, students read an article about sense organs in humans and in other animals, learning how the receptors within sense organs connect to neurons that go to the brain. The diagram shows a close-up of the receptors in the nose and tongue used in smell and taste. The last paragraph asks students to look up an article entitled "Amazing Animal Senses" and find 10 examples of special senses in animals. You can make that optional if you wish or come up with other questions.
