Structure, Support, and Movement
Your Skeleton

Grades 6-9

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. Students compare the
movement of different kinds of joints.
