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.
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.
Students research the human muscular and skeletal systems. In this muscular and skeletal system lesson, students use Internet resources to examine the two human systems. They learn associated vocabulary and word process the definitions. They include the definitions of three terms and digital pictures of teammates skeletal and muscular systems in a Power Point presentation.
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.
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.
After a lesson on the human skeleton, hand out a activity 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 activity, why not have kids label each other. They can make labels and put them on their partners skull, scapula, femur, and patella.
