Was it more difficult to catch the ruler using one of the senses as compared to the other? Explain.
How could you use only the sense of smell to catch the ruler?
How could you use only the sense of taste to catch the ruler?
Explain how your senses, nerves, brain, and muscles in your fingers helped you to catch the ruler for one of the senses explored. Use pages 17-23 of your student reference book to help you.
How did your body respond when the ball of paper was thrown at you?
How would this reflex protect your eyes if the transparency had not been there?
Do you think the nervous system responded to catching the ruler and blinking in the same way? Why or why not? Were the senses used in both? Were muscles used in both? Did you have to think about both actions?
Yes, touch was so hard compared to sight because touch the signal could be late or it might take you by suprise, sight on the other hand it was all on your reflexes, which made it easier.
As Mr. Solarz said someone would burp in your face, and that would be the signal to catch the ruler. Gross, but effective.
Um... You could maybe have someone put something in your mouth, and then you could catch it.
My eyes, recepted the images, and sent them to my brain, then my brain sent them to my finger muscles, and they caught the ruler.
I blinked, because I didnt want the paper to hit me. Duh.
I would have helped protect my eyes from the paper getting into them. A paper cut on the eye hurts!
No not really, catching the ruler was something you wanted to do, but flinching was something you kinda cant control. Senses? Sight yeah, but touch maybe not so much. Muscles, heck ya I blinked didnt I.
