Winter has arrived. In Morristown, Temperatures are going below 40 and at West one can find snowflakes falling on the walls outside of Jeremy Emmons' Health Science class. These snowflakes are not only decorations for the season but they also were a lesson that taught the students about the nervous system.
Emmon's purpose for this assignment was to put a creative twist on learning the different parts of the nervous system. Emmons chose snowflakes because like snowflakes, no two neurons look the same. Students cut out a quirky shape that represented the neurons.
Senior Gracie Bunch shared what she learned about the nervous system, "The function of the nervous system is to process information and give it to the body. The brain, spinal cord, and all the nerves in the body make up the nervous system." Senior Rebecca Jones also shared what she learned from this activity, "I have learned the importance of the classification of the nerves as well as how each Nerve can be unique."
