Bone Structure: Hollow vs. Solid
What is meant by the phrase "form follows function?" Allow your budding biologists to discover first-hand through two activities. In the first, groups work together to discover whether a solid cylinder or an empty cylinder can support more weight, both directly and in relation to the weight of the cylinder.

Physics and geometry come together in this display of strength and endurance as a three-hundred pound man pulls a 26,000 pound truck. Though the physics and geometry are not explained much beyond a mention of angle, this resource could be analyzed by your physics or geometry class to determine what allows the man shown to pull something so heavy.

Skeletal, Skin, and Muscular Systems
Eighth graders explain the functions of various body systems. Using a concept map, 8th graders identify and explain the fuctions of the skeletal, skin, and muscular systems of the body. After completing their concept map, students explain how these systems are related and work in conjunction to give balance to the body.
