In this online game, learners test their knowledge of human anatomy.
In this activity, learners are challenged to design and construct a jointed figure that moves in a motion (something like jumping jacks) when a string is pulled.
Designer Ears: Make “better” ears!
Find out what it would be like to have ears shaped differently from your own! Design and make different animal ears then try them out.
Supporting StructuresAdd to list Details
In this activity about living things and gravity (page 5 of PDF), learners design and build an exoskeleton or an endoskeleton for an animal of their own invention.
Muscle FibersAdd to list Details
In this activity about human anatomy (page 20 of PDF), learners investigate the structure of muscles by comparing yarn and cooked meat.
Chicken Wing Exploration
In this activity, learners explore cooked chicken wings and identify the various parts including: bones (radius, ulna, humerus, shoulder joint, elbow joint), tendons, and cartilage.
The Power of TogethernessAdd to list Details
In this activity about human anatomy (page 16 of PDF), learners construct a model arm and discover how muscles and bones work together to achieve efficient movement.
Sketch a SkeletonAdd to list Details
In this activity (on pages 15-18 of PDF), learners make a life-size two-dimensional paper model of their own skeletons.
Inner StrengthAdd to list Details
In this activity about endoskeletons (page 8 of PDF), learners observe, compare and contrast different kinds of chicken bones, and relate their chicken bone observations to human bones.
Gravity and MusclesAdd to list Details
In this activity about center of gravity (page 23 of PDF), learners investigate how the body adjusts to the force of gravity to remain balanced.
Heavy MetalAdd to list Details
In this activity (on pages 25-31 of PDF), learners soak sponges with different amounts of plaster of paris to simulate different levels of calcification in bone formation.
Bendy BonesAdd to list Details
In this activity (on pages 19-24 of PDF), learners soak chicken bones or eggshells in vinegar for several days.
Partners in Pollination
In this activity, learners identify the reproductive parts of plants and the animal (bee) structures involved in pollination.
In this hands-on activity, learners discover the similarities and differences between a vertebrate and invertebrate by dissecting a perch and a crawfish.
In this science and language arts activity, learners study fish anatomy and make their very own 3D paper fish.
Good StressAdd to list Details
In this activity about physical stress (page 28 of PDF), learners discover that muscles and bones need to work to stay strong.
Ziploc Digestion Simulator
In this biology activity, learners recreate the process of digestion in a zip lock bag. A bit of soda pop added to some crumbled crackers approximates how acids in the stomach dissolve food.
Round, Light and HollowAdd to list Details
In this activity about bones (page 12 of PDF), learners investigate and compare the weight-bearing capacity of solid and hollow cylinders.
