Candy Neurons: Making Learning Sweet in Psychology
Posted 01/10/2019 10:00AM

 

Students are already busy in AP Psychology learning about the nervous system. They made neurons (presynaptic and postsynaptic) out of candy yesterday to better understand the parts of a neuron. They were to use the following parts and label them with their partner:

  • Axon: Twizzler Pull Aparts
  • Dendrites: Sour Gummy Worms
  • Soma (Cell Body and Nucleus): Gummy Peachy Ring (Cell Body) and Lemonhead (Nucleus) 
  • Terminal Buttons: Skittles or M&Ms 
  • Myelin Sheath: Marshmallows
  • Vesicles: JujyFruits
  • Neurotransmitters: Nerds
  • Synaptic Cleft or Gap: Sour Punch Bites

Great work, Eagles!
