Renaissance Kids Study Skeletons

The third-grade students at the Renaissance Charter School at Palms West are learning about skeletons and bones. Students have made observations and discoveries about the human skeleton, “Mr. Bones.” During the observations, students could touch and move various parts of the skeleton. They also worked in groups to identify some of the same bones that they could locate on their own bodies, such as the elbow bone or joint. Next, students will conclude this science unit with students able to identify specific bones of the human skeleton and compare and contrast the human skeleton to the skeletons of various animals.
