Lesson Plan

Overview of the Nervous System :

This lesson gives an overview of the structure and function of the central and peripheral nervous systems. Students participate in a ball toss exercise, during which they identify which division of the nervous system produces particular responses. After, students complete a worksheet on which they label the functions of each part of the nervous system.
