    Forensic Anthropology: Anatomical Orientation Poster Activity

    Students construct a poster showing the Standard Anatomical Position, Body Planes, and the location of commonly used terms, such as “Superior” and “Anterior”. They are also required to assign their own grade, with justification. This activity ties in with the Terms of Orientations of the Body lesson available at my TPT store.

    Essential Understanding:

    There is a set procedure on how body parts are labeled. This allows for easy identification of body parts.

    Objectives:

    Students will construct a poster that identifies and describes the Standard Anatomical Position.

    Materials:

    • Poster paper
    • Art supplies
    • Class notes

    Estimated Time:

    One hour (depending on the student)

    Forensic Anthropology: Skeletal System Cut & Paste Poster Activity

    Students cut & paste the components of the Human Skeleton. They then label the different components. A listing of the functions of the Human Skeletal System is required too.

    The Activity Includes:

    • Instruction sheet with Rubric
    • A diagram of the Human Skeletal System
    • Two pages of skeleton bones that the students will cut out and paste to their poster.

    Needed Supplies:

    • Poster paper
    • Markers
    • Glue

    Estimated Time:

    • One hour (depending on the student)

    Tales of the Living Dead “Severed Hand” Video Reflection

    This assignment is a Video Reflection of the Tales of the Living Dead “Severed Hand Discovered in Holland” documentary. The video describes the investigation into the story behind a severed hand found in a bog. The video is approximately 40 minutes long.

    “A group digging for peat at Wijster (an area in the province of Drent, Holland, in 1901) came across some ancient silver coins, a copper kettle and some clothes.”

    This video is available on YouTube for free. The link to the video is included with the download.

    Several years ago I stopped using accompanying worksheets to videos I show in class. Too many times students are more focused in answering the questions, rather than absorbing what they are watching. But, I wanted the students to be actively engaged with the video. So, I started using “Video Reflections”.

    The video reflection handout has two columns on it. Student write what they have learned on the column on the left. They write down any questions they have on the column to the right. At the end of class, each student needs to tell the teacher something they learned, or a question they have.

    When given a choice, most students would rather have this type of assignment, compared to a worksheet.

    The Forensic Anthropology Study Guide is four pages long. It lists over 25 key Vocabulary Words that the students need to define. There are 11 open response type questions the students need to answer. In addition, there are three skeletal images where the names of bones need to be identified.

    Forensic Anthropology Justpardy Review Game PowerPoint has a similar concept to the game seen on TV

    Game Play Suggestion

    • Set up tables in front of the classroom, 1 table per team.
    • Divide the class up into 3-5 team, depending on class size.
    • Have each student taking a turn coming up that teams table at the front of the class.
    • Rotate, so each team gets to pick the Answer on the screen.
    • Each team representative in the front of the class writes down their answer.
    • For each correct answer the team gets a point.
    • The team with the most points when the game ends wins.

    I found that doing the game this way, each and every student participates. This prevents that one student from dominating the game.

    This is a fun way to review for a test.

    The PowerPoint is fully editable. This will allow you to modify the lesson to your individual classroom needs. (You cannot copy or modify any part of this lesson to offer others for free or for sale.)

    Quiz- Intro. to Forensic Anthropology & Terms of Orientation of the Body

    • 8 Multiple choice type questions
    • Answers are provided

    Test- Forensic Anthropology

    • 21 Multiple choice type questions
    • 3 Separate Charts with a total of 19 questions. Each has a word bank
    • 2 Open response questions. Students are instructed to answer one of the two
    • Answers are included

    The Forensic Anthropology Portfolio/Reflective Journal is an assessment tool where the STUDENT picks how they want to show you they have mastery of the subject.

    The students are given 10 different objectives they need to show mastery of. They do this by completing a project. They type is of their choice. These are some suggestions:

    • Make a collage
    • Comprise a song or rap
    • Construct a mobile
    • Make a poster
    • Assemble a scrap book
    • Traditional answer in writing (in a "project" form)
    • Other ideas you have (check with me first)

    I give this type of assignment the very first day of the unit. It is my belief that the teacher needs to let the students know exactly what they are expected to know by the time the unit is over. This also gives them time to work on their project.

    This assignment can be an additional assessment for students or the main assessment used.
