Teachers can use a skeletal system song to help students learn science curriculum in a way that won't be easily forgotten.
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 lesson plan, 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 instructional activity, students complete a chart of the different types of bones. Students fill in the blank about the joint types and their relationship with bones.
In this biology learning exercise, 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.
In this biology worksheet, 4th graders use a word bank of bone vocabulary to label 15 bones on the human skeleton. They read about how there are more than 200 bones in the human body.
Students discover the human skeletal system. In this human body lesson plan, students research the major bones of the human body and present their findings.
You can use these lesson plans to give students some hands on experience with the skeletal system.
In this human and avian skeleton review worksheet, students read about both skeletal systems and respond to 10 fill in the blank and drawing questions.
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.
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.
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.
Present your human biology with extensive coverage of the human skeletal system! In 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.
Through a research project, learners explore the skeletal system. First, they name the purpose of the skeletal system, to provide support, protection, and movement. Then, they conduct research using the sites listed to find out information about a particular part of the skeletal system. Finally, they share their information.
Promote reading comprehension and practice naming parts of the human skeleton with this online interactive activity! 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.
In this skeletal system graphic organizer worksheet, students use the 7 provided phases regarding the skeletal system to complete the concept map regarding the skeletal system.
In this skeletal system quiz activity, students complete an on-line quiz, clicking on questions and matching answers, scoring 1 point for each correct answer. A printed version is available.
In this biology worksheet, students answer 14 questions related to the skeletal system using an interactive crossword puzzle.
In this skeletal system instructional activity, students complete a crossword about the skeletal system. Students insert 14 words into the crossword. An answer key is provided.
