Structure, Support, and Movement
Your Skeleton

Grades 4-6

By identifying life size model bones, performing a bone dissection, and
examining x-rays of broken bones, students will explore how their
skeleton provides structure and support, enables movement, serves
as a mineral reserve, and produces blood cells. Students apply the
scientific method and learn about how the skeleton provides protection
by participating in an egg drop experiment.
