Skeletal Muscle Structure
Skeletal or striated, muscles are shown down to the chemical components. All the fibers that make up a muscle cell are described and animated. Use this to illustrate the parts of skeletal muscles for your anatomy or biology classes.

The Muscular System
Challenge pre-med biology classes with this set of questions on the structure and function of the muscular system. The questions are detailed and require students to employ their critical thinking skills. Compliment your anatomy curriculum by assigning this comprehensive worksheet as a review after your lecture on the muscular system.

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.

Protection, Support, and Locomotion
In this skeletal system learning exercise, learners 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.

Human Body Series - Bones, Muscles, and Joints
Strengthen understanding of the musculoskeletal system with a structured lesson! Begin with a discussion of bones, joints, and muscles. Have small groups read assigned articles and watch videos to gather information and then write a radio commentary of how the body parts work in a sports action.

Neural Network Signals
Using a simple circuit with the battery representing the brain, future physiologists test to see which solutions conduct electrical "nerve impulses." Enlighten learners with plentiful information on electric signals in the nervous system and the extensions suggested in the teacher's guide.

What better way to learn about muscle than by dissecting one? Using cow muscle (beef), learners compare bundles of yarn to muscle fibers as they explore each. The supplemental reading about astronauts losing muscle mass in space and what types of tests are being conducted to combat that atrophy adds real-world value to the lesson, as well as a hook to engage kids.

Muscles and Motor Locomotion
This is a fabulous presentation which should reinforce all aspects of muscle construction on a gross anatomical and micro level. There are slides to help understanding with the muscle fiber anatomy, and many labelled diagrams to explain muscle contraction.

Sensory and Motor Mechanisms
Advanced biology pupils name the function of each individual structure on figures of the eye and the ear. They describe the purpose of the skeleton and how it works with the muscles to create movement. Finally, they label a large diagram and write a paragraph detailing the muscle contraction process.
