In this food science activity, learners explore digestion and proteins by observing the action of meat tenderizer on luncheon meat.
Space Stations: Bones of ContentionAdd to list Details
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.
How quick are your reflexes? In this online game, you are a hockey goalie defending quick slap shots. Learn about reaction time, muscle memory, and reflexes.
Listen to THIS!
In this activity, learners use plastic tubing and a funnel to listen to their heart. Learners also discover that if they run around, their heart pumps harder and faster, making it easier to hear.
This is a great activity about human energy production. Learners will work out with a clothespin to investigate why hockey players jump on a stationary bike after an intense game.
In this activity, learners build a figure that moves and "comes to life" when they pull its string.
Jump for the MoonAdd to list Details
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.
Space Stations: Beans in SpaceAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners perform 20 arm curls with cans that simulate the weight of beans on Earth versus the weights of the same number of beans on the Moon and in space.
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.
Building BlocksAdd to list Details
In this activity (page 32 of PDF), learners investigate the nutritional needs of healthy bones and muscles.
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.
Base Station Walk-BackAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners will train to improve lung, heart, and other muscle endurance as they walk a progressive, measured distance.
Half Full or Half Empty
In this activity (12th activity on the page), learners conduct an experiment to demonstrate how muscles are constantly feeding information to the brain about what they are doing.
In this activity, learners conduct an experiment to test how fast they can react. Learners try to catch a piece of paper with a ruler printed on it (or a ruler) as quickly as they can.
Do a Spacewalk!Add to list Details
In this activity, learners train to increase muscular strength and improve upper and lower body coordination by performing the “bear crawl” and the "crab walk.” Learners perform the exercises over tim
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.
Crew Strength TrainingAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners will train to develop upper and lower body strength in their muscles and bones by performing body-weight squats and push-ups.
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.
Get Moving! Active Play Indoors and Outdoors
In this activity, learners explore the importance of active play.
In this activity, learners explore reaction time and challenge themselves to improve their coordination. Do you want to move faster? Catch that ball that you never seem to see in time?
