Get Your Students Excited About the Skeletal and Muscular SystemsStudents were yelling and screaming they were so excited about what was going on in class. They left the room talking about the lab we did that day, and other classes later in the day came in very excited to see the skeletal and muscular systems in action. I knew this was a lab I needed to share with you. Students were totally engaged and focused on the lesson. They had different roles that fit their different needs, but everyone was busy and involved.
Do you want your students thinking differently about something they probably encounter every day?
Human body systems are taught at so many different grade levels. Students are often interested and excited as it relates to their own body, but they quickly can lose interest if the information is dry and repetitive. Here is one of my favorite labs.
Be ready for some yelling and middle school excitement :). A great introduction to dissection, in a pretty tame way.
