Want to shake up your science lesson? We have the activity for you! This activity can be done with our “How Do Neurons Communicate” video or PowerPoint presentation found on our website. The goal of this activity is to illustrate how neurons make connections with each other to pass along signals. One neuron can be connected to thousands of other neurons, forming a neuronal network.
