Lesson Plan

What Is a Neuron?

Your class won't get on your nerves while doing this modeling activity! After teaching the structure and function of a neuron using the included diagrams, give individuals some clay and chenille stems so that they can make their own neuron model. This is the first lesson of an outstanding unit on brain chemistry, ideal for meeting middle school science standards and addressing the dangers of drug use at the same time!
