Protection, Support, and Locomotion
In this skeletal system worksheet, students will read a graphic organizer and complete 1 short answer question about the five functions of the skeleton. Then students will use a graphic organizer about muscle types to fill in a table comparing the smooth, cardiac, and skeletal muscles.

Walk, Run, Jump!
Students participate in a series of timed relay races using their skeletal muscles. They compare the movement of skeletal muscle and relate how engineers help astronauts exercise skeletal muscles in space. They list the three types of muscles and identify each as voluntary or involuntary, explain why exercise is important to maintaining healthy muscles and describe how engineers and our muscles work together as a team.
