This lab allows students to explore the bones of the skeletal system using models in the classroom. We used skeletons bought at a dollar store for Halloween which were mostly anatomically correct (they didn't have the correct number of cervical vertebrae). However, you can use skeleton models bought from a supply company or diagrams. This lab helps students learn the most common bones in a step-by-step process with the teacher as the facilitator. Students will draw and label the bones as they work through the activity. The activity takes one class which was 60 minutes but some students returned at lunch to finish. The diagrams they drew were fun to look at..... some students are much better artists. However, they all had the bones in the correct place!
Teacher notes and answer key is included.
