Skeletal System

Here's a fun website to use when learning about the skeletal system, or for a fun activity on Halloween!

BBC Skeletal and Muscles Activity
-It's on animals, but it's interesting for students to compare and contrast with our skeletons!

Fun Fall Links!

Here are some great links that my students are enjoying in the computer lab and on the promethean board!

--This is FANTASTIC!  We go through this on the promethean board and then the students make  a flip book comparing and contrasting the pilgrims life to the Wampanoag's life.  There is also a section with a timeline which is also a great skill to hit.....


--Okay, another seriously fantastic resource.  The students listen to a section about John Smith's travels and after they listen (they CAN'T just click right through---YAHOO!) they get to play a quick game.  This continues several times on different topics from John Smith's point of view.

--Students have to go through a simulation to see if they can survive.  They can ask different people for their opinions and read different material. At the end it will show their results and then give reasons why if something failed.  For example, Your health was poor because you choose to build on a swamp.  There were many mosquitos that spread diseases.   My 5th graders think this is the coolest thing ever ;)
