Nervous System Unit Schedule and Lesson Plan

Click the top or bottom section to enlarge
We LOVED learning about the Nervous System! There are SO many fascinating things to study. We covered all aspects of the brain and nervous system, from physiological to psychological. There is so much to learn!

There are lots of movies about the mind and brain. Here are a couple we watched from NOVA:
Secrets of the mind
How does the brain work?
As with all the NOVA movies, you have to be prepared for overdramatic presentation, and a sort of "pop sci" mentality, which drives some people crazy. I'm okay with it if it's what I'm expecting. Oh, and the obligatory "religion is just a mental disorder" hypothesis. Still, some interesting stuff in these videos. Like about rats and monkeys showing altruism?! We liked that.
