This activity involves a guided inquiry of the “Electrical Activity of Neurons” Click-and-Learn, an online tutorial that examines the electrical and chemical communication of neurons. Individually or in groups, students download and follow instructions on a worksheet to walk through each slide of the Click-and-Learn. While examining the Click-and-Learn, students respond to questions on the worksheet that highlight key details of neuronal communication.
