This is an alternate worksheet that coincides with the 4th grade, NYC ReadyGen, program and the text Skeletons INSIDE and OUT (Module B). I created the activity to allow my students the opportunity to extend the knowledge they have obtained through their investigation of the text (Skeletons) by independently researching a animal's skeleton. The students conduct their research using the worksheet, with provides them with step by step instructions on how to use a free, educational website by the Oxford University Museum of Natural History to examine the skeleton of a given animal and respond to questions about their analysis.
Great activity for multiple learning styles. Great use of technology.
I used this activity for my students with special needs to help guide them in research and investigation.
See my other listings for a similar activity. Purchase more than one to plan for variety/small group instruction.
