Teachers can use a skeletal system song to help students learn science curriculum in a way that won't be easily forgotten.
You can use these lesson plans to give students some hands on experience with the skeletal system.
Fifth graders research the bones of the skeletal system and how to keep them healthy using Internet resources. They complete a worksheet and a KWL chart. They design a human skeleton using pasta.
Students research the skeletal system. In this anatomy instructional activity, students measure their bodies to find the approximate length of their bones. They draw and cut out each of the bones and then attach them using brads or glue. 
Students explore the skeletal system and external body development of a full term fetus. In this biology lesson plan, students learn that growth of a full-term fetus' skeletal system and external body parts become more detailed and distinct throughout the three trimesters of pregnancy.
In this skeletal system investigation worksheet, students complete a chart of the different types of bones. Students fill in the blank about the joint types and their relationship with bones.
Students review the anatomical and common names for various parts of the skeletal system. They are able to open a file, work with the file and save their work to a disk and take home a hard copy of their work for review and study for a more comprehensive test in the future.
In this biology worksheet, students label 25 bones that are found in the human skeletal system. They fill in the blanks next to the black line pictures of a human skeleton.
Learners discover the human skeletal system. In this human body lesson, students research the major bones of the human body and present their findings.
Students conduct a hands-on study of bones using a laboratory skeleton and then use media center and online resources to enhance their knowledge of the bones of the human body, including diseases and injuries to the skeletal system.
Students utilize owl pellets to explain part of the natural food chain, and the skeletal system. They construct a rodent skeleton from the skeletal parts foundin the pellet.
In this human and avian skeleton review activity, students read about both skeletal systems and respond to 10 fill in the blank and drawing questions.
Sixth graders record a video. In this skeletal system lesson, 6th graders review what they already know about the skeletal system and then watch a presentation. Students work in groups to discuss what they learned and write a script for a video they will record. Students record a video and present it to the class.
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.
Present your human biology with extensive coverage of the human skeletal system! For this short-answer worksheet, learners address the six functions of the skeletal system, different types of bone cells, types of bone, and the healing of injuries. To make this assignment come alive, you could have learners actually demonstrate the joint movements that they describe in question #17.
Seventh graders identify and label twenty-five bones of the skeletal system. In small groups they glue various types of dried pasta to a large human body outline. They attach the pasta to the outline and label the pasta bones.
After a lesson on the human skeleton, hand out a learning exercise that requires learners to identify the pelvis, rib cage, skill, spine, and thigh bones. They draw a line from the name of the bone to its location on the skeleton. Tip: Instead of a learning exercise, why not have kids label each other. They can make labels and put them on their partners skull, scapula, femur, and patella. 
A dazzling display colorful computer-generated images, x-rays, and photographs create a comprehensive introduction to the skeletal system. With 12 slides in all, aspiring anatomists learn that there are 206 bones in the human body and how bones, joints, tendons, and ligaments both support the body and contribute to its movement. The focus is on the system rather than on individual bones. Have your class take notes as you progress through the slides, and then open the Test Yourself section and have them answer the questions together.
Students explore the website Visible Body and identify bones that are laid out across the classroom. In this skeleton lesson plan, students also answer short answer questions about the bones.
Promote reading comprehension and practice naming parts of the human skeleton with this online interactive worksheet! Scholars read about the functions of the human skeletal system, then work online to label a diagram by filling in 18 blanks using the word bank. The passage does not help students with the labeling activity, so consider providing outside resources.There are 3 fill-in-the-blank questions which do not have a word bank, but which are based on the reading.
