A smoker’s lungs next to healthy lungs. Smoking destroys cilia, which are tiny hairs in your lungs located in a thin layer of mucus in the upper airways.

This is a menu board (think appetizer, entree, side dish) that allows students to pick different activities that are all related to the form and function of the nervous system. It is meant for students in middle school to high school. Students must complete the appetizer assignment, can pick one of three entrees, and pick two of the four side dishes. Some of the activities include researching, comparing, drawing pictures, and writing.
