Reflex Arc Flipbook

Reflex Arc Flipbook

Images to create a small flipbook demonstrating the nerves that are active in the reflex arc. Pupils can cut out the pieces and staple together to a flipbook (or get the awesome reprographics guy to sort it), and then pupils can colour in the nerve that is active (first sensory, then reflex, then motor - and then the hand is removed as the effector muscle is active) to show the direction and action of each nerve. NB: Cutting off the bottom right hand corner at an angle makes the book easier to 'flick&'. :)
