In this skeletal system investigation worksheet, students complete a chart of the different types of bones. Students fill in the blank about the joint types and their relationship with bones.
Ten pieces that make up a human skeleton are printed on this handout. Anatomists cut them out, affix them to another sheet of paper, then label the major bones. With this assignment, pupils review the skeletal system and you will find that "dem bones gonna rise again!"
In this biology worksheet, 9th graders define striated and identify if the muscles of chicken's leg are striated or smooth. Then they determine how the muscles of a chicken leg are attached to the bones. Students also cut muscles away from joint and count the number of bundles they have from the leg.
Young scholars examine how muscles can work together with joints.  In this movement lesson students use a marionette to observe how muscles work. 
In this body movement worksheet, students draw a chain diagram that describes the process of moving some part of the body including the bones, muscles, and joints and the nervous system.
Students study bone size, structure and shape. They use various geometrical shapes to make a skeleton and produce a poster depicting the skeletal system and its functions. They arrange the pictures into the five sections, glue on poster paper and color and use magic markers to write facts next to each section.
Students examine the body's major organ systems and how they function and influence each other. They examine how the human body moves when involved in sports.
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.  
Students gain a greater comprehension of the anatomy and physiology of the muscular system, the skeletal system and connective tissue by researching joints in the body. They also reflect on the effects of injuries on their joints and learn about new treatment methods. Students familiarize themselves with the muscular and skeletal systems by completing a short quiz, using diagrams of the body.
Students investigate the practice of digging for fossils. They participate in a mock dig of fossils using real bones and other artifacts. Then students dig through sand in order to go through the simulation. Students make observations and record the data.
Young scholars investigate the human skeletal system. In this biology lesson, students trace the outline of their body onto butcher paper and fill in the names of the bones. Young scholars use an overhead transparency of the human skeletal system to check their work.
Students explain how the earth makes fossils and how dinosaur remains become fossils. For this Bringing Dinosaurs Back to Life lesson, students solve paleo-puzzles which ask students to solve problems as if they were paleontologists. Students also decide where to dig, read rocks, clean fossils, and preserve bones. Lastly students create a fossilized dinosaur remains landscape for others to excavate.
Students observe and investigate the human skeletal and muscle systems. They become aware of the versatility of movement as well as gain experience through the use of diagrams and hands on activities. An extensive vocabulary is covered within this lesson plan too.
Fourth graders explore the bones, joints, and other attributes of the skeletal system.
Students make a skeleton out of different shapes of pasta and identify the bones muscles and joints of a human body.
Learners analyze the movements they can do with their bones, muscles and joints. They explore, have discovery and review knowledge of movement. Students are asked to find their personal space.
First graders examine body systems and demonstrate their competency in a quiz game show. Lessons cover the brain, heart, lungs, digestive system, muscles, and bones. Students , in teams, answer teacher-created questions in the game.
Students construct ratios using the hand as data. They use examples of cortical and trabecular bone found in the long bones to measure circumference, diameter, length, and weight of long bones. They perform computations using growth chart data.
Students assist in taking the meat off of cooked chicken bones. They try to assemble the chicken skeleton as best as possible, and use the meat to make chicken soup, and make mobiles from the bones.
Students identify human muscles and bones from a cardboard skeleton, named "Mr. Skelly." Using dialog balloons as props, the teacher holds up advice from Mr. Skelly, such as noting he drinks milk to keep his bones strong. The lesson also stresses the consequences of poor health with pictures of diseased organs.
