Level#1

People enjoy tasting food, listening to music, touching a puppy's fur, smelling flowers, and watching movies. These activities are possible because of five important organs: tongue, nose, skin, eyes, and ears. Each sense organ has special parts and cells that allow it to work. These organs do more than help your enjoy the world. They send very important information to your brain every second. This information helps you to stay healthy.

1. What are the five senses (list them!)?





2. What do the sense organs allow people to do?





3. Where do the sense organs send very important messages to? 







Level#2

These organs do more than help your enjoy the world. They send very important information to your brain every second. This information helps you to stay healthy. Your tongue is covered with sensory neurons that sense taste. These neurons are contained in taste buds. You have four kinds of taste buds; sour, sweet, salty, and bitter.

1. What do the sense organs send to your brain and how does this information help you?






2. What is your tongue covered with and what do sensory neurons do?






3. What are the sensory neurons that sense taste contained in and how many and what type of tastes are there?

Your tongue is covered with sensory neurons that sense taste. These neurons are contained in taste buds. You have four kinds of taste buds; sour, sweet, salty, and bitter. Much of your sense of taste is really smell. As you eat, scents from your food enter your nose. Smells are picked up by sensory neurons in the nose. These cells have long, hair-like structures. The hair-like structures are connected to nerves. These nerves carry messages to the brain. The brain interprets the smell.

1. How many kinds of taste buds do you have and what are they?







2. What is much of your sense of taste, and how does your nose assist in this process?







3. Explain what picks up smells in your nose and the process that allows you to smell things.

*To improve your MATH SKILLS spend at least 20 minutes practicing them using IXL.COM. (REMEMBER TO ENTER YOUR USER NAME AND PASSWORD WHEN LOGGING ON! THAT WILL BE PROOF THAT YOU DID IT!)

Level#1

A stroke happens when something prevents the brain from getting it blood supply. Without blood, nerve cells in the brain die. Many people become partly paralyzed from having a stroke. Cerebral palsy is another disorder caused by damage to the brain. A person with cerebral palsy has less-than-normal control over his or her muscles. This person's hands may shake, or he or she may not be able to form words. In some cases, the person's arms are stiff and slow moving. Cerebral palsy is sometimes caused by poor prenatal care. Prenatal care means before birth, so prenatal care is care received by a baby while it is still inside its mother.

1. What is cerebral palsy?





2. How does cerebral palsy affect someone's muscles?






3. How does cerebral palsy affect a person's hands and speech?

Prenatal care means before birth, so prenatal care is care received by a baby while it is still inside its mother. A third disease that affects the nervous system is multiple sclerosis. This disease attacks the body's nerves. The damaged nerves are then unable to send or receive messages. Multiple sclerosis usually attacks people between the ages of 20 and 40. Epilepsy is a disorder that causes a person to have seizures. People suffering from this condition have abnormal brain waves.

1. How can cerebral palsy sometimes affect a person's arms, and what is it sometimes caused by?






2. What is prenatal care, and when does a baby receive it?






3. What is another disease that affects the nervous system, and what does it attack?

Epilepsy is a disorder that causes a person to have seizures. People suffering from this condition have abnormal brain waves. Drugs and alcohol also affect the nervous system. A person's eyesight, thinking, and muscle control are impaired after drinking alcohol or abusing drugs. Drugs and alcohol often have long-term effects, too. Memory loss, nervousness, and poor emotional health are some of these effects. There may also be signs of brain damage as a result of drug and alcohol abuse.

1. What is the third disease that affects the nervous system, what does it attack, and what are the damaged nerves unable to do?








2. Explain what epilepsy is, and what people suffering from this condition have.








3. Explain how drugs and alcohol affect a person's nervous system, and what the long-term effects of drug and alcohol use are.

Level#1

Be careful! Head and back injuries can cause lasting damage to the nervous system. Use your common sense to prevent accidents. Drive safely and always wear your seat belt. When you ride a motorcycle or a bicycle, wear a helmet. Be aware of what drugs and alcohol can do to your nervous system. Every time a person drinks, brain cells are killed. Every time a drug is abused, the chemistry of the brain is changed. Long-lasting effects to the nervous system may be serious and even deadly.

1. What should you be aware of that can damage your nervous system?





2. What happens every time a person drinks (alcohol)?





3. What happens every time a drug is abused?







Level#2

Be careful! Head and back injuries can cause lasting damage to the nervous system. Use your common sense to prevent accidents. Drive safely and always wear your seat belt. When you ride a motorcycle or a bicycle, wear a helmet. Be aware of what drugs and alcohol can do to your nervous system. Every time a person drinks, brain cells are killed. Every time a drug is abused, the chemistry of the brain is changed. Long-lasting effects to the nervous system may be serious and even deadly. If you become parent, take care of your baby's nervous system by getting good prenatal care. What a pregnant woman does, even in the earliest days of pregnancy, can affect her baby's nervous system. Make sure you know the effects of diet, exercise, drug use, drinking, and smoking on your baby.

1. What should a person who is having a baby do to take care of their baby's nervous system?






2. Why should a pregnant woman be very careful what she does as soon as she knows she is pregnant?






3. What should a pregnant woman make sure she knows that can affect her developing baby?










Level#3

Make sure you know the effects of diet, exercise, drug use, drinking, and smoking on your baby. Relax and enjoy life. Stress and tension tire and weaken your nervous system. Stress can also cause headaches. Take at least 20 minutes out of the day to exercise, nap, or just relax.

1. Explain what a pregnant woman needs to know the effects of to protect her baby.







2. Explain what stress and tension do to your nervous system.







3. Explain what stress can cause, and what you can do to keep your nervous system healthy.
