With upper-elementary students, using the skeletal system can be a productive first step in learning about the various systems in the human body. Of all the systems, the skeletal system seems to be the most familiar to students. This lesson, which helps students understand joints and their role in how our bodies bend, twist, and spin--is always a favorite. And in addition to giving a lot of information to students, it generates a great deal of interest in how the body works. (Contains 1 figure.)
