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.
3rd - 12th Science CCSS: Adaptable
Don't be chicken to try a lesson plan that compares the anatomy of birds to humans. Read the background information so you don't have to wing it when it comes to the anatomy of a chicken. Prepare cooked chicken bones by soaking them in a bleach solution, then guide your young scientists through an exploration of bones and cartilage.

Adaptations to Niches and Habitats
Life science learners measure and record traits of seeds, leaves, and their own hands and then graph the data to find a continous distribution curve. They compare and color diagrams of seven different animals' forelimbs (not included), note the adaptations, and relate them to the animals' habitats.

Structures That Reveal Common Ancestry
Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee, check out wing shapes for common ancestry! Beginning biologists compare wings as analogous structures and discover that environment influences evolution of adaptations. A third activity relies on illustrations of mammal limb bones and coverings, but they are not provided.

Human Body Lessons
Students read "The Magic School Bus in the Human Body" and discuss the importance of maintaining a healthy body. They create a hinge and joint paper skeleton, follow the journey of a hamburger through the digestive tract, jump rope and measure their heartbeats and pulse to investigate the body further.
3rd - 5th Science
Your Bones and Joints
Here is a word search that has learners find 17 words that have to do with bones, joints, and exercise. Additionally learners must put the words in alphabetical order, then use each word to fill in the blank in three sentences. As far as word searches go, this is a good one!
2nd - 4th English Language Arts
A picture of a half skeleton (it's cut right down the middle) is depicted for your pupils. They must complete the right half of the skeleton, based on the structure shown on the left half. Then, they must label all of the bones using a bank of 19 bone words at the top of the worksheet.

New Review Matching: Adult, Homo Sapiens
Looking for a basic skeleton-system-matching activity? You've found it! Kids color in the skeleton bones with different colors before matching each bone to its correct name. The vocabulary isn't simple here; learners are locating the radius, tibia, humerus, and scapula among other bones.
1st - 7th Science
Who Done It?
Pick and choose which activities to include in this crime scene investigation. Junior detectives can examine fingerprints, DNA, blood samples, or bone structure. The plan suggests you have teams solve a mystery, but it does not give you a specific mystery for them to solve.

The Human Body: Bones
Here is an interactive PowerPoint about the skeletal system. The first slide shows the entire skeleton and allows learners to try to name each major bone structure before clicking to show the answer. The following slides provide more detailed information about each.

The Case of the Biological Biosphere: Health, Math, Technology
Students investigate various aspects of the human body in this imaginative Tree House Detective episode about the biological biosphere. In a series of They take measurements, analyze data, and use technology. The lessons revolve around a video which is not provided on the website.
5th - 7th Math
What is the Evidence for Evolution?
Students identify one object that would tell the story of their lives. In groups, they determine what can and cannot be told from objects left behind. After watching a video, they compare and contrast chicken bones to human bones. To end the lesson, they create a timeline of the Cenozoic Era.

Boosting Your Memory
In this memory worksheet, learners learn about three different ways to memorize given information. They make up phrases to help remember lists and they create mental maps to remember terms. They put what they learned to the test and explain how they would memorize two lists.
