Performance Expectations:

MS-LS1-8. Gather and synthesize information that sensory receptors respond to stimuli by sending messages to the brain for immediate behavior or storage as memories.

  • Science & Engineering Practices

    Developing and Using Models - Develop and use a model to describe a phenomenon.

  • Disciplinary Core Ideas

    LS1.D: Information Processing - Each sense receptor responds to different inputs (electromagnetic, mechanical, chemical), transmitting them as signals that travel along nerve cells to the brain. The signals are then processed in the brain, resulting in immediate behaviors or memories.

  • Crosscutting Concepts

    Cause and Effect - Cause and effect relationships may be used to predict phenomena in natural systems.
