Introduction Process Conclusion Skeletal System By: Ainsley Matz Task Evaluation Teacher’s Page Introduction Welcome class!!! Our next topic in science is the human body! On our first stop we are starting from the inside out with the bones!!! When we put all the bones together we have the skeletal system! In today’s web quest we are going to explore interesting facts and the importance of the skeletal system. Task Today we are going to be doctors trying to figure out what is going on in the skeletal system. We will look at how many bones someone should have, what are major bones, what are bones made up of, what else is needed for bones to move? Process Skeletal System this is to introduce some basic knowledge of the skeletal system to help refresh us from med school. Label me!!! Use this site to help label your worksheet What are bones made of? Go to this site and investigate what bones are made of and if they are Alive?!?!?! What happens if we break a bone? Write 3 important things that we should remember when we break a bone. Compare your skeleton to the skeleton of a frog at Virtual Frog Dissection Kit: The Whole Frog. Joints? What are they? What do they do? Explore these joints to learn what the different joints are and For fun!!! Mr. Bones Now that you are finished take this quiz. Once you have answered the question on last page, go to file print to show your results. Evaluation Teacher will grade the worksheets that were completed Teacher will also record results of quiz at the end of the web quest. Also teacher will note if students managed their time efficiently. Conclusion Now that you have completed your basic training of the skeletal system you should be able to know how a body moves. The bones are not the only thing that helps the body move… on our next adventure we will explore the muscles and how they work with the bones to move us!!!!! Teachers Page Must have flash player for activity to work! Print out a copy of blank human skeleton. This web quest is a great opportunity for third grade students to get up and use different resources to gain knowledge. Studies have shown that children learn the best when they are actively learning and this is a great tool for the students to explore. Also this is a bit open ended and allows students to ask questions. Everyday children use their bones now they will know how! Objectives/Standards 3.3.4.B. Know that living things are made up of parts that have specific functions. Students will be able to explain how bones are important. Students will be able to compare how human skeletons are similar to frogs Students will be able to group major bones into their areas on the body Students will be able to apply their new knowledge to a diagram of the human skeleton.
