Motor System Explorations
Each Explorations magazine is an extension of the activities done in class. The cover activity of The Motor System Explorations asks students to determine how the nerves and nervous system in the body are like a network of roads and highways. Articles within discuss the structure and purpose of the motor system and offers activities such as writing using the non-dominant hand along with several tests for reflexive movements. The magazine also features an interview with a pediatric physiatrist who explains her choice of careers.
This magazine is an integrated component of The Motor System unit. Though designed for use with students in grades 3–5, The Motor System Explorations also may be appropriate for students in grade 6.
