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.
In this skeletal system graphic organizer activity, learners use the 7 provided phases regarding the skeletal system to complete the concept map regarding the skeletal system.
Skeletal System Quiz
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.
Skeletal System Crossword
In this biology learning exercise, students answer 14 questions related to the skeletal system using an interactive crossword puzzle.
Skeletal System Crossword
In this skeletal system worksheet, students complete a crossword about the skeletal system. Students insert 14 words into the crossword. An answer key is provided.
The Skeletal System
In this biology instructional activity, 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.
Human Body Series - Bones, Muscles, and Joints - Dem Bones
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!"
How the Body Works - Bones
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 plan 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!
Educational apps reviews are available to members
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.
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 plan, 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.
Skeletal System Joints
High schoolers identify the different joints in the skeletal system. In this anatomy lesson, students describe the function of each joints. They draw them and their direction of movement.
Functions of the Skeletal System
Students identify and describe the functions of bones in the body. They complete an outline and questionnaire to demonstrate knowledge.
The Skeletal System
Learners 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.
Organs for Christmas
Students 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.
Physiology ad Root Words
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.
No Bones About It
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.
The Ultimate Guide: Human Body
Students study the body systems and their functions. In this human body lesson students research the Internet on body systems and write a description of them.
The Bone Known
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.
Students learn the correct names of various bones in the human body by using locomotor skills. They, in groups, move to the "pile of bones" to get the specified piece of the skeleton and the label required and return to the group.
Mission 4: Exploring Body Systems
Students discover how nutrition impacts major body systems. In this nutrition lesson, students brainstorm how they think the digestive system works and discuss how essential nutrients impact major body systems. They work in groups to research different body systems, and each group creates a poster and slogan to promote healthy eating.
