In this activity about bones, learners' jaws will drop when a bone is tied in a knot! A rib or turkey/chicken leg bone is placed in a jar of vinegar. After two weeks, the calcium in the bone dissolves in the vinegar, so the bone is able to bend, sometimes into a knot. This activity can also be done with an egg, which is described at the end of this lesson. Use this experiment to illustrate the anatomy of bones and the process of ossification. This activity is featured on pp.13-14 of the "Bones: More Than They Appear" unit of study for 4th, 5th, and 6th grade learners. (less)

In this activity related to bones and the artist Georgia O'Keeffe, learners create artworks inspired by natural objects. Learners first research and discuss the artwork of O'Keeffe. Then learners create a work of art based on found objects in nature using various media (watercolor, chalk, colored pencil, etc.). Upon completion of the project, the artwork can be displayed in a mural. Use this activity to help learners investigate how bones and natural objects are used in art. This activity is featured on pp.43-44 of the "Bones: More Than They Appear" unit of study for 4th, 5th, and 6th grade learners. (less)

In this optics activity, learners examine how polarized light can reveal stress patterns in clear plastic. Learners place a fork between two pieces of polarizing material and induce stress by squeezing the tines together. Learners will observe the colored stress pattern in the image of the plastic that is projected onto a screen using an overhead projector. Learners rotate one of the polarizing filters to explore which orientations give the most dramatic color effects. This activity can be related to bones, as bones develop stress patterns from the loads imposed upon them every day. (less)

In this activity, learners use clay and sticks, straws, wire or pipe cleaners to construct models of animals, trees or other "lanky" structures. Learners compare the structural integrity of these structures with and without "bones" (sticks/straws/wire/pipe cleaners). This activity includes an extension in which learners construct two different towers, one with an internal support structure and one without; learners record the heights and graph their findings. This activity is featured on p. 23 of the "Bones: More Than They Appear" unit of study for 4th, 5th, and 6th grade learners. (less)

This fun Web site is part of OLogy, where kids can collect virtual trading cards and create projects with them. Here, they learn about paleontology with a hands-on activity. The activity opens with an explanation covering how fossilized bones are usually very delicate and buried deeply in rock fossils. Students are then given step-by-step directions for working with a friend to create two make-believe dig sites by burying bones in plaster of Paris. The activity ends with three discussion questions: What was surprising about excavating the bones? What strategies did you find worked well for removing the plaster? How would you have worked differently if you had no idea what was buried inside? (less)

In this activity about physical stress (page 28 of PDF), learners discover that muscles and bones need to work to stay strong. In part 1, learners investigate how physical stress can affect bone (a hard material) by bending plastic knives. In part 2, learners explore the effects of stress on the muscles in their hands by predicting and counting the number of times they can "click" a clothespin. Learners will conduct this experiment every other day for two weeks to discover that their muscles grow stronger with conditioning. This guide includes background information, extensions, and a data sheet. (less)
