Using this online interactive quiz worksheet, your young biologists try matching descriptions of bones to the correct name. For example, they will match "upper arm bone" to "humerus." Feedback is immediate, and students get as many chances as they need. This will serve mostly as a review or study tool, and it doesn't require critical thinking or analysis, simple memorization and practice. An image to go along with these terms would be helpful for more visual learners.
Students compare bird skeletons with dinosaur bones. For this dinosaur and anatomy lesson, students listen to the book The Field Mouse and the Dinosaur Named Sue by Jan Wahl and generate memories of what they saw at a field trip to the Field Museum. Students work with a partner to complete a worksheet in which they shade bones from a bird skeleton with the same color pencil as matching dinosaur bones. Students compare and contrast their findings.
