Skeleton (Adventurer Award)
Chesapeake Conference Award
This award is presented to those students who complete the requirements for this course and obtain a solid understanding of the human skeleton.
Answer these questions:
1. Bones attached together make a skeleton. We all have skeletons. They give us shape and help us to move.
- What are the bones attached together with? (Hint: It's not glue! If they were glued together, we couldn't move)
- How many bones are in the body?
- What mineral makes strong bones?
- What does the bone marrow inside of our long bones do for us?
2. What bone did God take out of Adam? What did he do with it? (Genesis 2:22)
3. Sing a song (or two!) about bones
4. Complete a worksheet about bones or make a paper skeleton with brads
5. A. Name 5 of the bones in the body and show where they are located
B. Name 3 joints (places where our skeletons bend)
1. A. Stretchy bands called Ligaments
D. make our blood
2. We sang with YouTube videos for "The Skeleton Dance" and "Bones In Your Body". The songs were the Adventurers favorite part
4. Many worksheets are available online. Keep them fairly simple. We used a cut & paste bone labeling activity and also an identify-the-bones-by-color coloring sheet from Human Body Workbook by Living Life and Learning.
5. A. You have 206 to choose from:). The skull, ribs, humerus, spine, teeth, and femur are fairly well-known. Finger and toe bones are called phalanges. The jaw bone is the mandible, and the hip bone is the pelvis.
B. elbow, knee, wrist, knuckle, ankle, hip, etc.
*If possible, bring an animal bone or a few to look at and examine.
