This resource is an online unit on the nervous system and sensory receptors. This unit is on the nervous system, the brain, and how sensory receptors receive information and convert it to an electrochemical signal that is sent through the nervous system to the brain. Once the signal gets to the brain it is processed and the brain may send a signal to tell the body how to respond or store the information as memory. This unit begins and ends with the use of phenomena. This Google product provides your students with informational text passages, interactive activities, videos, fillable response pages, and a quiz. All of this is done online and is completely paperless. Perfect for Google Classroom.
In order to access this resource TPT must put a copy in your Google Drive. Some school districts have restrictions on this. Be sure to check with your district and make sure you are allowed to use Google products in your classroom. You may add it to a personal drive if that is easier for you.
My resources, including the slide shows, are secure and not editable. This is for copyright reasons.
This resource is intended for online use. If you are looking for a printable unit please see Sensory Receptors and The Nervous System NGSS MS-LS1-8
NGSS MS-LS1-8 Gather and synthesize information that sensory receptors respond to stimuli by sending messages to the brain for immediate behavior or storage as memories. [Assessment Boundary: Assessment does not include mechanisms for the transmission of this information.]
Also aligned with:
Use argument supported by evidence for how the body is a system of interacting subsystems composed of groups of cells. [Clarification Statement: Emphasis is on the conceptual understanding that cells form tissues and tissues form organs specialized for particular body functions. Examples could include the interaction of subsystems within a system and the normal functioning of those systems.] [Assessment Boundary: Assessment does not include the mechanism of one body system independent of others. Assessment is limited to the circulatory, excretory, digestive, respiratory, muscular, and nervous systems.]
Utah SEEd 7.3.3 Construct an explanation using evidence to explain how body systems have various levels of the organization. Emphasize that cells form tissues, tissues form organs, and organs form systems specialized for particular body functions. Examples could include relationships between the circulatory, excretory, digestive, respiratory, muscular, skeletal, or nervous systems. Specific organ functions will be taught at the high school level. (LS1.A)
