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.
Learners identify and explain the purpose of some bones in the human skeleton, explain the organization of the human skeleton and develop questions about the human body and skeleton.
For 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 worksheet, learners 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.
For this skeletal system worksheet, students complete a crossword about the skeletal system. Students insert 14 words into the crossword. An answer key is provided.
In this biology worksheet, 9th graders label the different illustrations of movable joints. Then they describe the pivot, ball-and-socket, hinge, and gliding joints in detail. Students also list the five major functions of the skeletal system.
  Students discuss the need for humans to have a skeletal system and what would happen if we did not have bones.  In this skeletal system lesson, students label each bone in the human skeletal system as a group, and then examine two chicken bones and think about the differences between them.   
Students identify the different joints in the skeletal system. For this anatomy lesson, students describe the function of each joints. They draw them and their direction of movement.
Students identify and describe the functions of bones in the body. They complete an outline and questionnaire to demonstrate knowledge.
In this skeletal system worksheet, students place the phrases that are associated with the skeletal system on the concept map at the bottom of the worksheet.
Students identify the different parts of the skeletal system. In this biology lesson, students put together a skeleton using an interactive website. They evaluate the accuracy of their own answers.
Coming soon: A full-length video about bones. Don't disregard this in the meantime, however. It's a valuable introduction that you could insert into your lesson about the skeletal system. With a silly Texas accent, the narrator covers how many bones we have, what the role of the skeletal system is, the largest and smallest bones, different types of bones, and even names the more significant bones. What makes this resource most useful is that it comes complete with links to a related article, a multiple-choice quiz, and printable activities including a cut-and-paste skeleton. Make no bones about it, this resource will add structure to your human body systems unit!
Ten pieces that make up a human skeleton are printed on this handout. Anatomists cut them out, affix them to another sheet of paper, then label the major bones. With this assignment, pupils review the skeletal system and you will find that "dem bones gonna rise again!"
Bone-up on the anatomy of the human skeletal system with this richly detailed application. From stapes to femur, and every bone in-between, find its anatomical position and read about its function and physical characteristics.
High schoolers make an organ tree as a Christmas tree for the room. They make models of all the organs that they have studied, tie the organs together with the framework of the skeleton and muscles, and use nerves and blood vessels as tinsel.
Students investigate the different functions of the body. In this biology lesson, students study the brain, and central nervous system. They define vocabulary words pertaining to the function of the brain and the nervous system.
Students conduct Internet research on the different parts of the skeletal system. Then they create a model arm that demonstrates how muscle and bone work together to create movement.
High schoolers study the body systems and their functions.  In this human body lesson plan students research the Internet on body systems and write a description of them. 
Students explore the human skeleton. In this biology lesson, students view a diagram of the human skeleton and identify the names of bones. Students define the role bones play in protecting the human body and construct a paper skeleton using metal clasps and paper.
