Anatomy and Physiology Body Systems made interesting for seniors

I teach A&P for highschool seniors...I created a neat activity for exploring the Skeletal System. The students will work with a partner and "roam" throughout the building trying to find answers for a scavenger hunt. They are encouraged to bring a cell phone or camera to document some of the answers they discover. I will include a couple of questions as an example.....

Skeletal System Scavenger Hunt

**Ask Mr. Simmons, “The Simmonator”, if he ever had an injury due to sports. Describe the injury and how it was treated. Have him sign your sheet.


Skeletal System Scavenger Hunt

**Take Raul’s skull to Mr. Riner. Ask him to quickly sketch it on your paper. You label it and have him sign your sheet.

Skeletal System Scavenger Hunt

**Ask Mrs. Eldridge to “do her trick” with her phalanges. Explain why she is able to do that. Have her sign your sheet. (if someone can take a picture…with whatever device available…that would be great!! )


Skeletal System Scavenger Hunt

**Find the jawbone of a sea turtle in a science classroom. Find out where it came from and how it ended up at MSHS. (if someone can take a picture…with whatever device available…that would be great!! )

Skeletal System Scavenger Hunt

**Find a large picture of a “Movie Star” and write down the German word for the following parts of the body:

1. elbow

2. shoulder

3. knee

Have the teacher sign your sheet and be sure to say “Thank You”!



Will you guys share cool things you do to help me make Body Systems interesting and engaging for our digital learners?

Thanks!

How fun is this! How about a question like: "What muscles did you need to get from one activity to the next?"

I laughed at Mrs. Eldridge's "trick with her phalanges" - I can only assume it is similar to my trick. I can make a horse with my "double jointed" fingers - little kids love it. You should see my elbow trick!
I assume all the people mentioned are on staff? Does anyone have replacement joints?

Great idea about the muscles, Tom and the replacement joints, Mel!! I am going to revise some of my questions. Keep the ideas coming!! :) Thanks
