Give Me a Hand, I'm "Thumb-body" Special

Students label the bones in the hand, create a model of the hand, compile a set of fingerprints, and explore the importance of the thumb. In this anatomy of the hand lesson plan, students participate in six hands-on activities to increase their knowledge of their hands. They toss a ball, trace their hand, use a mixture of flour, salt, and water to create dough to make their handprint, and use graphite shavings to make fingerprints.

I am a very busy Head of Department and often don't have time to create worksheets and other resources for my classes. Lesson Planet has helped me find many useful and interesting activities to support my students' learning.
