What better way to study the structures of organisms than by creating a new being? After considering different types of skeletal supports (exoskeleton and endoskeleton), budding biogeneticists work together to create their own animals - first on paper, then using basic materials.

Scientific Root Words, Prefixes, and Suffixes
It's hard to imagine that anything was missed on this five-page list of science roots, prefixes, and suffixes! Listed in alphabetical order, all are included in a single, two-column list. This may be especially useful for advanced science classes or as a reference when working on scientific literacy.

The Human Body
An incredible series of lessons on the human body is here for you! Young scientists explore various websites, construct a skeleton using macaroni, compare/contrast a frog skeleton to a human skeleton, label the main parts of the human body, and create a clay model heart.
1st - 3rd Science
The Human Body
Elementary schoolers use the Internet in order to explore topics related to the human body and its systems. An impressive, 15-page lesson plan that should leave your charges with a much better understanding of the human body and how its systems interact with each other.
4th - 6th English Language Arts
Life Science: Exploring Our Human Bodies
Students explore the concept of the human body. They complete a variety of activities concerning the function of various organs. They listen to their heartbeat with a stethoscope, examine how muscles work during a game of tag, and play a game in which they identify the bones of the body.
2nd - 4th Science
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.
4th - 6th Science
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.
3rd - 5th Science
Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes
Young scholars 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.
6th - 12th Health
What is the Skeletal System?
Students 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. Students use an overhead transparency of the human skeletal system to check their work.
4th - 8th Science
Bringing Dinosaurs Back to Life
Students 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 students to solve problems as if they were paleontologists. Students also decide where to dig, read rocks, clean fossils, and preserve bones.
4th - 8th Science
Anatomy and Physiology of the Human Knee Joint
Students examine human anatomy with a focus on the knee joint. In groups, they research the chemical makeup of human bones and explain the different types of joints found in the body. To end the lesson, they identify the other structures needed in order for movements and describe the most common knee injuries and their treatment.
