Neurons explained through handmade modelsHealth Science II sophomores learn more about nervous system
In order to further students’ knowledge on the nervous system, students in Ms. Lori Martinelli’s Health Science II class are creating neuron models.
“Neurons are the basic working units found in the brain, which is very important to the human body,” Martinelli said.
For this project, the students are able to decide how they want to present their neuron model. Although some students are creating visuals with posters, others are creating various online presentations.
“I am letting the students do whatever they choose for their presentation,” Martinelli said. “I believe that giving them the freedom to do whatever they choose will give them a better understanding of the lesson.”
Students will have to include a description of what a neuron is and name other various parts of the neuron in their presentation.
“For our project, we are creating a website,” sophomore Meeaud Mohammed said. “It’ll feature key vocabulary words for the neuron, along with an online model of the neuron.”
