My Skeleton and Investigating Animals including Humans
We strive to be a hub of information for primary school teachers and home educators who are always looking for quick answers to various problems. Let’s now look at the human body, alongside animals including humans, in the context of science education.
The human body is a fascinating subject that can be explored through a variety of scientific lenses, including biology, chemistry, and physics. In the earlier key stages, students can begin to develop their scientific knowledge by investigating the digestive system and identifying differences between various organs and systems. By using classification keys, students can also learn to classify different animals based on their characteristics and features.
When it comes to investigating animals including humans, students can engage in comparative and fair tests to draw simple conclusions about different aspects of the body. For example, they can explore apparent movement by studying how we perceive motion and how it differs from actual motion.
By taking a hands-on approach, students can develop a deeper understanding of the human body and how it functions. So, whether you're answering questions about the skeletal system or exploring the intricacies of animal biology, we're here to help you every step of the way.
Hands-On Education’s My Skeleton Activities for KS2
In this section we're excited to introduce you to our skeleton activities for KS2, which includes engaging national curriculum of England led activities on:
- Vertebrates and invertebrates
- Label the skeleton
- Hand x-ray
- Spinal model
- Bone structure investigation
- Protecting organs
- Skeleton support investigation
- Moving my body
These activities are designed to provide hands-on learning experiences for children, allowing them to explore the human skeleton and learn about its various functions. Students will have the opportunity to label the skeleton, investigate bone structure, and explore how the skeleton supports and protects our organs.
In addition, our activities also explore the ways in which we use our skeleton for movement, with investigations into how different materials can affect our ability to move. Students will also have the opportunity to learn about the importance of a healthy lunch box and how it affects our overall health.
Our My Skeleton Activities for KS2 are aligned with the national curriculum subjects and science curriculum, ensuring that students are receiving a comprehensive education while having fun. These activities also incorporate comparative and fair tests, allowing students to identify differences and learn about the scientific method.
So, if you're looking for engaging and informative activities to teach your students about the human skeleton, look no further than Hands-On Education's my skeleton activities for KS2. Our topics are designed to be inclusive and accessible, ensuring that all students can participate and learn at their own pace. Your students or children will have a great time learning about the human body and discovering all the amazing things that our skeletons can do with Hands-On Education!
