Watch the short video: Name That Bone Demo Video
New Version! (March 3, 2015)
The Name That Bone Tutorial is a 66 page interactive (hyperlinked) activity that guides students through the study of the major bones of the human body. Students begin by studying the reference diagram of the bones and then they practice identifying individual bones from high quality images photographed from a dis-articulated laboratory skeleton. This activity groups the individual bones of the hands, feet, and vertebra and is very challenging because the bone images are shown separate from one another forcing students to really look at the shape of the bone. Students can get a hint at any time but must complete the tutorial before taking the QUIZ at the end. A quiz answer sheet and answer key are provided.
The Name That Bone tutorial works well on any device that can read PDF documents with hyperlinks (Mac, PC, Chromebook, iPad*, etc.). The document can be emailed to students or distributed through an LMS such as Blackboard, Moodle, Schoology, Google Classroom (Google Drive) or just passed around on a flash drive. Whatever method you choose, please make sure the document is only available to your students.
*on your iPad, use a free app like "Documents" by Readdle, iBooks, or Adobe Reader to ensure full function of all hyperlinks.
