Many researchers believe that the common ancestor of apes and humans was built for life in the trees. The major adaptation of the hominid branch of our family tree was bipedalism, the ability to walk on two legs. This ability allowed our ancestors to cover long distances of open ground on foot, and freed their hands for making and using tools. Looking at the bones of our closest living ape relative can tell us something of the physical adaptations that enabled our ancestors to efficiently walk long distances. (less)

In this activity (on pages 19-24 of PDF), learners soak chicken bones or eggshells in vinegar for several days. Learners observe what happens to the material as the acid dissolves the calcium that provides the strength to the material. The lesson includes information about calcium, calcium-rich foods that keep bones strong, and an explanation of how the acidic vinegar solution causes the bone or eggshell to become weak. (less)

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)

This activity (page 3 of the PDF) is a full inquiry investigation into fossil hunting and identification. Groups of learners will sift through a commercially prepared owl pellet, looking for bone pieces that they will attempt to match to an identification chart and subsequently arrange into a rough skeleton. Learners use this exercise to consider how animal skeletons help researchers determine what kinds of animals live together in an ecosystem as well compare the bones they find to the bones in their own body. Relates to linked video, DragonflyTV GPS: Dinosaurs. (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 construct a bone model and simulate changes that occur during the healing process and growth of a bone. Using pre-made or homemade play dough (recipe included) and other everyday items, learners reconstruct a cross-section model of a bone. Time estimate is based on time required when using pre-made play dough. This activity is featured on pp.16-17 of the "Bones: More Than They Appear" unit of study for 4th, 5th, and 6th grade learners.

This game is a version of "Win, Lose, or Draw," in which learners draw clues and guess phrases that are related to bones. This fun activity includes the exploration and interpretation of figurative language. Incorporate the study of language, including idioms, personification, metaphors, or similes, into your unit on bones and the skeleton. This activity is featured on p.49 of the "Bones: More Than They Appear" unit of study for 4th, 5th, and 6th grade learners. (less)

In this art activity related to bone anatomy, learners use the spongy part of a bone as a brush to create a work of art. This activity emulates the painting technique used by Native Americans of the Plains. Learners will discover that the spongy part of bones absorbs and holds paint very well. This activity is featured on p. 22 of the "Bones: More Than They Appear" unit of study for 4th, 5th, and 6th grade learners. (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)

In this activity (page 32 of PDF), learners investigate the nutritional needs of healthy bones and muscles. Learners make a list of their diet from the past 24 hours, sort what they ate by food group and serving size, and calculate their calcium intake. This activity will teach learners how to make good food choices, especially in terms of getting enough calcium. This guide includes background information, extensions, and handouts. (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, pairs of learners will create two make-believe dig sites by burying chicken bones in plaster of Paris--a powder that hardens when wet. Then, learners try to excavate (dig out) their partner's "fossils." Learners will discover that excavating fossils requires skill, patience, and the right tools. Note: this activity requires adult supervision as working with plaster of Paris can be dangerous if not done properly. (less)

In this activity (on pages 11-14 of PDF), learners cut out pictures from magazines of foods that help make bones strong and glue the pictures to a paper bone. The lesson plan includes information about various activities - including physical exercise as well as diet - that lead to healthy bones. It also includes a list of foods that provide calcium to strengthen bones, including dairy products, spinach, and tofu. The paper bones can be cut out of construction paper prior to the activity.
