This complete unit on bone, muscle, and skin includes teacher materials, standards,(see the Curriculum Supplement Series main page for the link to state standards), complete student materials and web resources, and everything you need to teach about the skeleton, muscles, and skin, including UV exposure. NIH has done an outstanding job of organizing everything for you. There are videos to make the content come alive (require Quicktime). See the Getting Started section for information on the needed plug-ins (Flash, Quicktime, and Acrobat Reader). This unit also includes a section where students analyze their own sun exposure.Soccer players will especially enjoy the "anatomy of a kick."

In the Classroom

Whether you do the entire unit or focus on one portion, your middle school students will respond well to watching videos on a projector or to researching different portions of the content for health or PE class.
  This resource requires Adobe Flash and PDF reader software like Adobe Acrobat.
