Skeletal System Unit : Lessons Incorporated: Parts of the Skeleton Functions of the Skeletal System Note : Each lesson in this unit has been developed to teach in one instructional hour. The activities included in each lesson will engage students’ personality styles, brain dominances, preferred learning styles, and multiple intelligences, and will allow for “deep” learning. Omissions of the guided/group practice activities and the individual practice activities in order to “cover” more content will result in a reduction of student learning and engagement.

Interest Approach – Prior Knowledge Group Think *This activity is done with the assumption that students have previously studied the human skeletal system in a life science or biology course. Break students into groups of three or four. Give the instructions that they are to list as many of the bones of the human skeleton as possible along with their anatomical position. Allow 2-1/2 minutes for “Group Think.” Finally, have each group stand and identify the bones their locations utilizing their group members as models. The teacher should make corrections with proper names and location as each group proceeds. Content Delivery
