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?
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.

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?
Learners investigate the human skeletal system. For this biology lesson, students trace the outline of their body onto butcher paper and fill in the names of the bones. Learners use an overhead transparency of the human skeletal system to check their work.

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.

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.

Human Body Lessons
Learners 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.

Can You Make a Muscle?
Why are muscles important? Third graders study the different kinds and functions of muscles in the human body. After drawing arrows in an illustration to indicate where a muscle contraction would occur, they do their own experiment about the muscles in their body.

An Arm and A Leg
Students examine how the movements of bones are dependent on the interaction of pairs of muscles. They design and construct a prototype of an artificial limb using a syringe system, and determine whether water or air makes the appendage more efficient.

Introduction to Light Scattering
When young physicists study light, they will need to explore refraction, fiber optics, and birefringence. Within this resource are the background information and activity instructions for exploring all of these phenomena. Use all of the included material for a well-rounded unit on the behavior of light, or choose one of the many activities to support your own curriuclum.

Giant Body Kit 2 - Teacher's Notes
Here is a unique resource: cut-out diagrams of parts of the human anatomy. Included are half of the ribcage, a cross section of the head and brain, and cross sections of the abdomen. An informational page of teacher's notes is provided but it does not explain exactly what is to be done with the handouts.
