Next Generation Science Standards
NGSS.MS-LS. LIFE SCIENCE
MS-LS1. From Molecules to Organisms: Structures and Processes - Students who demonstrate understanding can:
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.
MS-LS1.DCI. Disciplinary Core Ideas
LS1.D: Information Processing
LS1.D:1. 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. (MS-LS1-8)
