Inferring Height From Bone Length
Students determine the relationship between bone length and height. In groups, they are told the race and gender of the individual and discuss how this affects height. They measure the lengths of the bones in metric measurements and infer the height.

Human Anatomy- How Do We Move?
Students examine the muscular system. In this muscular system lesson, students first draw a realistic representation of their leg or arm bones. Students do several activities to attach these bones to "joints" with string to simulate the actual movement of our bodies.

Structures That Reveal Common Ancestry
Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee, check out wing shapes for common ancestry! Beginning biologists compare wings as analogous structures and discover that environment influences evolution of adaptations. A third activity relies on illustrations of mammal limb bones and coverings, but they are not provided.

Human Body Lessons
Students read "The Magic School Bus in the Human Body" and discuss the importance of maintaining a healthy body. They create a hinge and joint paper skeleton, follow the journey of a hamburger through the digestive tract, jump rope and measure their heartbeats and pulse to investigate the body further.
