“5-Minute Prep” ForHuman BodySystems Working TogetherMuscles and Bones


Muscles and Bones – The Big Ideas

  • The skeletal system and the muscular system work together to provide movement for the body.

  • The skeletal system and the muscular system work together to protect internal organs.


Muscles and Bones – Prior Knowledge

Students will have knowledge of some systems of the body prior to this study. It will be helpful for students to use the FUN-damental, Building A Body, to review Muscles and Bones. It will also help if they are able to:

  • Explain that the body is made up of systems.

  • Locate and name some of the parts of the skeletal and muscular systems.


Muscles and Bones – Common Misconceptions

  • Muscles are not found all over the body.

    • Reality: Muscles are found all over the body. The body has over 600 muscles.

  • Your muscles turn to fat if you quit exercising.

    • Reality: If a person stops exercising, his or her muscle cells may decrease in volume and become smaller. At the same time, a person may increase the volume of fat cells in his or her body. A cell can not change from one type of cell to another type of cell.


Muscles and Bones – Using DE Science Content

When you close this presentation, you can review the following recommended resources for Muscles and Bones.

  • Reading Passage: Bones and Muscles: Keep on Moving!

  • Reading Passage: The Skeleton and Muscles

  • eBook: Bones and Muscles: Working Together

  • Video Segment: Skeletal System

    Use the PowerPoint version of this presentation for hyperlinks to these resources or you can get to them through the browser or search feature.


Muscles and Bones – Instructional Ideas

  • Read the reading passage, The Skeleton and Muscles.

    • To become more aware of where bones and muscles are located, ask students to look through books to find specific bones and muscles.

    • While doing this, ask students to share their findings and make a class chart of bones and muscles and where they are located in the body.

    • Play, Simon Says, using the names of bones and muscles from this list. (i.e. “Simon says point to your patella.”)


Muscles and Bones – Instructional Ideas

  • Watch the Video Segment, The Skeletal System.

    • Give each student a card with the name of a bone or muscle in the body written on it.

    • Ask each student to write a riddle containing clues about the bone or muscle listed on the card without naming the bone or muscle.

    • Ask students to share their riddles while others guess what is being described. The student that guesses the answer to the first riddle shares their riddle next.

    • Continue in this fashion until all students have shared.
