The skeletal system is a complex organization of many bones. It is important to understand the system as a whole before identifying the significance of a single bone. What do you know about the skeletal system? Review the basics of the skeletal system by viewing the resources listed below.

Now that you have a basic understanding of the skeletal system, it is time to look closely at one particular bone. The femur is the largest bone in the body. While viewing the resources below, consider the following questions: What layers exist in the femur? Where is the femur located in the skeletal system? What function does the femur allow humans to achieve? What is the role of the femur? Which bones connect to the femur? Take notes using the Cornell Notes sheet.Cornell Notes sheet Digital resources: Basic Advanced About Kids Health: Bone Anatomy About Kids Health: Bone Anatomy Bone Structure Bone Structure About Kids Health: Skeleton Anatomy About Kids Health: Skeleton Anatomy Arm and Leg Bones: Safari Montage (teacher will show or students view from home) Arm and Leg Bones: Safari Montage The Living Bone: Safari Montage (teacher will show or students view from home) The Living Bone: Safari Montage BrainPop: Skeleton BrainPop: Skeleton What choices or additional information can you add here as an introduction to the task to be outlined on the next page? 1111 2222 3333 6666 5555 4444 Next Image Source: World Book Advanced by subscriptionWorld Book Advanced
Using the notes from the previous resources, complete the following questions about the femur in complete sentences. 1111 2222 3333 6666 5555 4444 Next MS Word Version
Now it is time to put your new knowledge to work. You have researched the skeletal system as a whole and the femur in detail. Synthesize this information to answer the essential question: Consider the question in terms of an athlete running. Choose one of the following options to explain how the process of running would change if the femur was: Shorter Longer Composed of less layers/different materials Create a diagram and detailed explanation using Dabbleboard. Be sure to include: Dabbleboard Change in appearance Change in function Change in skeletal system Diagram and explanation may be graded using the rubric.rubric 1111 2222 3333 6666 5555 4444 Next Click on the image to view a video of a runner.

There are 205 other bones in the body. Choose one of the bones to research and discover answers to the following questions: What layers exist in the bone? Where is the bone located in the skeletal system? What function does the bone allow humans to achieve? What is the role of the bone? Which bones connect to the chosen bone?

BCPS Curriculum Motion (7.2) Expectation 2: The student will apply the concepts and laws of mechanics to describe the behavior of the physical world and human body (4)Students will analyze data obtained from observations of real-life events and make predictions about the impact of forces on the human body Maryland State Curriculum 1.4.2 The student will analyze data to make predictions, decisions, or draw conclusions. 1.4.8 The student will use models and computer simulations to extend his/her understanding of scientific concepts.(NTB) 1.5.2 The student will explain scientific concepts and processes through drawing, writing, and/or oral communication. 1.7 The student will show that connections exist both within the various fields of science and among science and other disciplines including mathematics, social studies, language arts, fine arts, and technology. Common Core State Standards Reading: 1. Read closely to determine what the text says explicitly and to make logical inferences from it; cite specific textual evidence when writing or speaking to support conclusions drawn from the text. Writing: 7. Conduct short as well as more sustained research projects based on focused questions, demonstrating understanding of the subject under investigation. Writing in Science and Technical Subjects: WHST.9-10.9 Draw evidence from informational texts to support analysis, reflection, and research. Standards for the 21 st Century Learner Standards for the 21 st Century Learner 1.1.6 Read, view, and listen for information presented in any format (e.g. textual, visual, media, digital) in order to make inferences and gather meaning. 2.1.3 Use strategies to draw conclusions from information and apply knowledge to curricular areas, real-world situations, and further investigations. ISTE NETS S 1 Students demonstrate creative thinking, construct knowledge, and develop innovative products and processes using technology. 3 Students apply digital tools to gather, evaluate, and use information. Time Frame: 1 90 minute period Differentiation: Students may choose the level of resources that best matchers their ability level, basic or advanced. Students may use the Closed Captioning feature in BrainPop and Safari Montage.
