The hip bone connected to the leg bone, and your life science learners connected to the screen! Fun facts about the skeletal system are displayed before Bill explains how joints work. Hinge, saddle, ball-and-socket, gliding, and fixed joints are all introduced in this vivacious video clip. Show it to get your class interested in studying the skeletal system.
Humans are so used to gravity as a force that we don't tend to pay much attention to it on a daily basis. Through a couple simple activities, learners experience changes to their center of gravity and come to the understanding that people make adjustments for gravity more than we realize. Kids record their data on the provided worksheet, then answer some follow-up questions. Duration of the lesson will vary depending on the age of the class.
A group of 10 questions of various styles queries your anatomy and physiology fanatics on the workings of the musculoskeletal system. Because several of the questions pertain to bone disease and more advanced topics like synovial and cartilaginous joints, this assessment is most appropriate for high schoolers. A lesson plan is available to help you put the skeletal system together for your class.
Salaries, accreditation, and health technologies, sounds like career exploration time! Kids examine everything one needs to know before going into a health career. They explore the requirements and salaries earned by EMTs, massage therapists, radiologists, and personal trainers. 
Students explore new support regarding the earliest peopling of America by examining multiple theories on the migration of the first people to America, investigating related archaeological finds, and creating research-based scientific reports on their assigned archeological finds to present at an "archeology convention."
Previous videos have dealt with the proteins that produce mechanical motion and how nerves stimulate contraction. But this presentation explains on a gross anatomical scale, how skeletal muscle is structured.
A well-designed lesson on the skeletal system awaits your students. They perform hands-on explorations of common items, view a PowerPoint presentation, and utilize other visuals to be able to identify a hinge, ball and socket, and gliding joint in a skeleton. This is a very engaging lesson which should have your third graders very excited!
Seventh graders become familiar with biomedical engineering.  In this prosthetic device lesson, 7th graders consider the needs of a prosthetic device to help a specific person's characteristics.  Students build a prosthetic device.
Students explore the human anatomy. In this respiratory system activity, students conduct an experiment to simulate the capacity of human lungs. 
Young scholars investigate the nervous system.  In this anatomy lesson, students identify and define vocabulary related to the nervous system. Young scholars role play the parts of a nervous system and perform an experiment measuring and comparing their right and left hand reaction time.
Students examine a variety of injuries that can happen to the human body and discover the process of maintaining healthy bones. After discussing the process of bone repair following a break, they draw the process in cartoon style and incorporate new vocabulary words.
Young scholars compare and contrast key skeletal differences between chimpanzees and humans: brain size, teeth, hand and thumb, trunk, pelvis, lower limb, foot and big toe. They then sort and group a set of mixed "fossil bones" of chimpanzee or human. A set of Australopithecine bones is introduced and students apply their skeletal knowledge to the classification of these "mystery" bones.
Students explore early hominid evolution as they analyze bones that share characteristics of both apes and humans. Students compare and contrast key skeletal differences between chimpanzees and humans. In groups, they sort and group a set of mixed bones of chimpanzees and human. A set of Australopithecine bones is introduced and students apply their skeletal knowledge to the classification of these unknown bones.
Students examine the body's major organ systems and how they function and influence each other. They examine how the human body moves when involved in sports.
Students examine the different body systems and how they are interdependent on each other.  In this body systems lesson students draw the body and its parts. 
Students create a diagram of the human body. In this body systems lesson, students create a diagram of all the body systems they have studied using transparencies to layer one system over another.
High schoolers review body systems and their functions. As a representative of the Duodenum Dynamics Ad Agency, they create a travel brochure for the Anatomy Travel Bureau.
In this body parts worksheet, students match words to definitions, categorize organs into systems, name functions of organs, and more. Students complete 5 activities.
In this skeletal system worksheet, students are given 19 diagrams of different bones or parts of the skeletal system. They label all the structures of each bone or set of bones such as the skull and use the flashcards to study the parts.
Students practice analyzing skeletal remains for clues by using the Internet.  In this scientific investigation lesson, students research the La Belle shipwreck using the Internet and written materials, later completing a Skeletal Report Form in order to organize information about the victims.  Students discuss their findings with the class.
