Skeletal System - PowerPoint and Handouts
Learn about the skeletal system, diagram a long bone, describe the different types of joints, and identify 31 bones of the human body. They then apply this information to an exciting project in which students assemble a large skeleton, label its bones, and identify major joints on the skeleton using a color coded key.
This 3-5 day long lesson which includes PowerPoint presentation, student notes, Dem Crazy Bones
project, and student friendly diagrams for labeling.
These condensed system notes are designed in a straightforward and simplistic manner to allow for elaboration, question and answer period, and extension where desired. Notes are organized and easy to understand. Students listen to lecture, watch the engaging PowerPoint (which includes blue hyperlinks to cool websites, bell work/sponges with animated answers, animated slides that have simple artwork to help solidify difficult concepts), and instead of writing tedious notes, they fill in the blanks of key words for the system. The notes then lead into engaging labs and projects for the Skeletal system.
