Description Collection Description
A collection of resources to help students understand the skeletal system and how the skeletal system interacts with the muscular system.

Describe how this collection was used.
I used this collection as a resource of sites and activities to make my lessons on the skeletal system more engaging for students in anatomy and physiology; and help deepen their understanding of specific aspects of the skeletal system.

Describe who used this collection (classroom, laboratory, education level, etc).
I used this collection with my high school anatomy and physiology classes.

Describe how this collection works.
I used this collection to first introduce the skeletal system using the learning centers activity, and then proceeded through the resources within the unit. I used the lab activities to help students understand bone density and motion in the skeletal system. Then I showed how the skeletal and muscular systems interact. Finally, the students could use the review sites to prepare for their lab practical.

Please enter suggestions for colleagues.
I hope that these activities give you additional things to use to enhance your teaching of the skeletal system.

I use this site as a review activity for my anatomy students when we are preparing for the skeletal system lab practical.

This collection is mostly activities and labs. The first 6 resources go together, and include the student lab sheets as well as the teacher information. This is obviously a supplement and would not be great to give you a complete unit, but it is a great addition to what I already use!
