Bones, bones and more bones
Last week I started the skeletal system with my 2nd level class. I was looking for a way to review with the students. I created 5 stations for the students to rotate through with different activities at each. They had 15 minutes at each station before rotating. The stations were: labeling a skeleton using tape; labeling bones on each other using tape; coloring bones on a worksheet; using play dough to shape bones and practice the cut lines, quadrant lines, and regions; and playing a match game with our skeletal vocabulary. The kids loved it! The biggest challenge was keeping the noise level down because they were excited about the change of pace. I will use this method again with a different chapter later on and change out the activities. I will probably make the groups smaller to keep noise down even though I will have to make another station. The students said that it was a great review and even though it took time to create and set up, I think it was fun and helped as a review for our test. :)
