Of all the human body systems, I think the nervous system is the hardest to teach. Start a discussion on resting potentials, action potentials, and sodium potassium pumps and just watch the students get that glazed over look in their eyes. What is the trick to teaching this tricky body system? Give out the information in small doses, break up instruction time with short demonstrations and activities, and review, review, review!
nervous system warm ups. This body system is complicated, and the daily review and reinforcement is vital to student mastery. This set of warm ups has 37 student pages. I use them for warm up activities, homework assignments and preparation for the unit test. I require my students to keep the pages in a warm up notebook. These pages are also ideal as inserts into interactive notebooks. I have definitely noticed an increase in test scores since I started requiring my students to keep a warm up notebook.
This Table of Contents will give you a better idea of the topics and concepts that are covered by the 37 student warm up pages.
The last 5 student warm pages are always used to prepare for the unit test. These pages consist of multiple choice, fill in the blank, compare and contrast and true/false questions. They are first used to prepare for the unit test, but later become perfect for the semester exam review.
