In this activity, learners rotate through several learning and play stations to explore dinosaurs and paleontologists.
In this activity, learners make models representing bones on Earth and bones that have been in space. They discover what happens to bones without proper exercise and nutrition.
In this activity, learners simulate what happens to a human spine in space by making Sponge Spool Spines (alternating sponge pieces and spools threaded on a pipe cleaner).
In this activity about engineering, nutrition, and physical activity, learners design and build a healthy bone model of a space explorer which is strong enough to withstand increasing amounts of weigh
This activity (page 3 of the PDF under SciGirls Activity: Dinosaurs) is a full inquiry investigation into fossil hunting and identification.
In this activity, learners build a figure that moves and "comes to life" when they pull its string.
In this activity, learners will train to increase bone strength and to improve heart and other muscle endurance by performing jump training with a rope, both while stationary and moving.
Bones are stiff, which helps us lift heavy things and walk around, but they are also somewhat flexible, which lets them bend slightly.
In this health activity (page 5 of the PDF), learners will explore a unique connection betweeen the bones of the body.
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.
In this activity (page 32 of PDF), learners investigate the nutritional needs of healthy bones and muscles.
In this optics activity, learners examine how polarized light can reveal stress patterns in clear plastic.
In this activity, pairs of learners will create two make-believe dig sites by burying chicken bones in plaster of Paris--a powder that hardens when wet.
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.
In this activity (on pages 11-14 of PDF), learners cut out pictures from magazines of foods that help make bones strong and glue the pictures to a paper bone.
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.
In this activity (on pages 15-18 of PDF), learners make a life-size two-dimensional paper model of their own skeletons.
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.
In this activity, (on page 6 of the PDF under SciGirls Activity: Dinosaurs) learners participate in a hands-on fossil excavation.
