Human Body Series - Bones, Muscles, and Joints

Curated and Reviewed by Lesson Planet

Strengthen understanding of the musculoskeletal system with a structured lesson! Begin with a discussion of bones, joints, and muscles. Have small groups read assigned articles and watch videos to gather information and then write a radio commentary of how the body parts work in a sports action. Finally, learners label a diagram of the internal structure of a bone. Pick and choose from the large selection of hip resources what would be most appropriate for your learners. Note that this review retains titles for the original articles, but includes Internet addresses for the most up-to-date links.
