The Nervous System coordinates the voluntary and involuntary movements of the body. Without it you couldn’t move, speak, or breath. It includes the spinal chord and the nerves. It also includes the brain, which helps you think and understand. All of those body parts have to work together to make your body move. Listed below are books and online activities to help you learn about this amazing body system!
