When you want to send a message to someone, how do you do it? Do you send a text, an email, or pass them a note? Your body sends messages through chemicals, known as hormones. They affect almost every cell, organ, and function in our body! In this hands-on session, we used customized dominoes to explore the different types of hormones, their cascading effects, and their impacts on our daily lives.
Materials: Download and print the Hormones Dominoes template; cardboard or cardstock; scissors; white glue or a glue stick.
