LESSON PLAN IN SCIENCE AND HEALTH VI
Identify the parts and function of the peripheral and the autonomic nervous system
A. Unit I- People
B. Topic: The Nervous System
Sub-topic: The Peripheral and Autonomic Nervous System
C. Science Ideas:
* The nervous system is composed of the central nervous system which is composed of the brain and the spinal cord; the peripheral nervous system which includes the nerves outside the brain and the spinal cord, and the autonomic nervous system which is composed of the sympathetic and parasympathetic nerves. * These systems are organized to receive, process and act on stimuli from the environment. D. Science Processes: identifying, describing, comparing
E. Materials: drawing or illustration of the peripheral and autonomic nervous system F. Reference: Science and Health 6, pp. 35-38
G. Value: Appreciate how the central, peripheral and autonomic nervous system coordinate with each other.
A. Preliminary Activities
1. Health Inspection
2. Science News Reporting
3. Checking of assignment
4. Review: What are the main parts of the central nervous system? What is the
function of each part?
B. Developmental Activities
1. Motivation: Ask: How do you think the information reaches the central nervous system and back to the body parts responsible for the implementation of the message(action)?
2. Presentation of the illustrations of the peripheral and the autonomic nervous
Discussion on the relationship of the central nervous system with the peripheral
and the autonomic nervous system.
3. Let the pupils do the activity, Looking and Interpreting. * Look at the santol fruit or an unripe mango. Do you salivate at the sight of such fruits? What organs of the nervous system are involved when you salivate? * Can you tell why you react the same way when you look at delicious and appetizing foods? Have the pupils say in their own words how the peripheral and autonomic nervous system work based on what they read. 4. Abstraction and analysis
How do the peripheral and autonomic system work?
What are the parts of the peripheral and autonomic nervous systems? Why are they important? 6. Application
Armando accidentally cut his finger. At first he did not feel the pain. After a few seconds, he gradually felt the pain? Why do you think so? 7. Valuing: You have a normal peripheral and autonomic nervous system. What word would you say to God for having this?

a. controls involuntary functions of the body
b. consists of sympathetic and cardiac nerves

a. work separately
b. work by pairs
c. coordinate with each other
d. work only when the need arises.
5. Which of the following is the work of sympathetic and parasympathetic nerves? a. when the sympathetic nerve produces an effect, the parasympathetic nerve produces an opposite action. b. when the sympathetic nerve produces an...
