ACTIVITY 1 LET'S FIND OUT ABOUT SKELETONS 1.Topic : Skeleton 2. Level : Years 3 and 4 3. Aims: - To present the names of the bones 4. Resources : Quiz ( Template 1.1 ) and information sources encyclopaedias, textbooks, photocopies and/or Google ( Template 1.2 ). As an example I have included a skeleton information sheet, if you do not have access to the above resources. 5. Procedure: -Hand out copies of the quiz - Set a time limit - In pairs, children look for the answers in the sources chosen. EITHER let them use dictionaries OR pre-teach key vocabulary ( NOT the names of the bones). - Correct with the whole class - Class repetition to practice the pronunciation of the names 6. Reinforcement and Extension Activities - Something extra: Early finishers can write their own questions about the text. When we finish the exercise, they can ask their questions to the class and the class have to try to find the answers as quickly as possible, alone or in teams.

TEMPLATE 1.2 SKELETON INFORMATION SHEET Human beings are vertebrates. They have a spinal column and a skeleton. The skeleton is made up of all the bones in the body. There are 206 bones in the human body. Bones have many important functions. Bones support our body and give it shape. They protect important organs: for example our skull (the bones in our head) protects the brain, and our ribs protect our heart and lungs (see the diagram to understand this better). Our bones also help us to move. The bones in our body are very hard. They contain a lot of calcium and other elements many of these elements are also found in rocks! When we grow, our bones grow too. It is important to eat calcium when we are children if we want to have strong, healthy bones. We can get calcium from milk and milk products.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
