Due to COVID and having virtual students (and also minimize touching surfaces), I had to revamp my skeletal system labs. This is what I came up with- pictures of the bones that I use, and questions to go with it.

Students review the features of the coxal bones, femur, tibia, fibula, foot, and identify male vs female pelvis. They label some bones/features, and also drag and drop arrows to label features. The key is included.

If you have a big class, this lab can be really hard to check quickly for everyone- so I really recommend forcing students to work in groups, and then you can look at just one slideshow per group at a time.

I have two sections, one with around 20 kids and the other about 15. We were basically able to get through this in two class periods (45 minutes each). I had a few groups pretty close to being done on the first day (this lab goes a little faster than my upper appendicular version).

I have fast groups work on their homework (drawings of the bones from their textbook) after they finish the lab. You could have an additional assignment ready to go so fast groups stay busy if they finish ahead of others.
