Our Bones lesson plan is a basic introduction to the human skeleton and general information about bones. Only a few of the bones are given their scientific names. It is more important for students at this level to be introduced to bones and the human skeleton, as well as muscles, tendons, etc. During this lesson, students are asked to cut apart each piece of a paper skeleton and correctly join the pieces on a separate sheet of paper in order to demonstrate their understanding of the lesson content. Students are also asked to use a word bank to label a skeleton.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to identify basic bones of the body, define related parts of the human skeleton, and list ways to help keep their bones protected.
