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.
