Studies have shown that when young adults know the result of a risk, they are less likely to take that risk. While conducting activities in the Brain Chemistry Teacher's Guide, students explore chemical communication in the brain and nervous system. They also learn the risks posed by some drugs, and the powerful effects that drugs can have on the brain and body.
The Structure of Cells
Your body has many kinds of cells, each specialized for a particular purpose. But despite the wide variety of cells, all share certain fundamental characteristics. Use this slide set to teach students more about these smallest units of life.
Help your students understand Newton's Three Laws of Motion as they construct and test a lightweight “rocket” car propelled by the action/reaction force of air escaping from an inflated balloon.
