The Muscle System
In this biology instructional activity, 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.

The Human Skeletal System: Inside and Out
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.

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

Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes
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.

What is the Skeletal System?
Students investigate the human skeletal system. In this biology lesson plan, students trace the outline of their body onto butcher paper and fill in the names of the bones. Students use an overhead transparency of the human skeletal system to check their work.

Bringing Dinosaurs Back to Life
Young scholars explain how the earth makes fossils and how dinosaur remains become fossils. In this Bringing Dinosaurs Back to Life lesson, students solve paleo-puzzles which ask young scholars to solve problems as if they were paleontologists.

Learners 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. Learners make observations and record the data.

EXPLORING OUR HUMAN BODIES
Middle schoolers 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 too.

Mathematics In You
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.

Health: The Skeleton with a Message
Learners 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.
