In this online game, learners test their knowledge of human anatomy.
Kelsey: Clues of the Dig Site MapAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners explore dinosaur fossils and a dig site. Learners work in groups to analyze a dig site map and match bones to a skeletal drawing of Kelsey (a Triceratops).
Space Stations: Sponge Spool Spine
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).
Make a Dinosaur ModelAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners explore dinosaur skeletons, anatomy, and locomotion. Learners compare and contrast dinosaur skeletons and drawings.
In this activity, learners explore different types of fossils by making their out of dough and objects from around the house.
Thumbs Away!Add to list Details
Learners discover how important their thumbs are by attempting various tasks without them. After tying up their thumbs, learners attempt to legibly write their names or play catch with a tennis ball.
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.
Stiff Bones, Bendy Bones
Bones are stiff, which helps us lift heavy things and walk around, but they are also somewhat flexible, which lets them bend slightly.
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.
Inside OutAdd to list Details
Learners draw and cut out shapes of organs from construction paper. Then they attach these organs to the body of one learner to make a life-sized map of all the internal organs.
Fossil Dig Site
In this activity (located on page 5 of PDF), learners work in groups to create dig sites for display.
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 Skeleton
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.
Classroom Dinosaur DigAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners participate in a simulated dig to discover fossilized dinosaur bones. Learners take notes, make a map and propose theories about dinosaurs.
Flesh Out a Fossil
In this activity, learners discover how artists start with a skeleton and turn it into a realistic drawing of a dinosaur.
In this activity, learners touch and observe skulls of sharks and rays to learn about their diversity (over 400 species of sharks alone!).
Size, Scale and ModelsAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners take measurements and create charts to learn about the size of dinosaurs and their relative scale to humans.
