Hands on Anatomy- Who Are You?

My students need 2 Sherlock Bones Skeletal Identification Lab Activity Kits to learn hands on science skills allowing them to increase their knowledge of the skeleton system and solve a "mystery".

My Students

We area a small but might high school in an urban community that empowers students to thrive in a unique learning environment. Students have access to teachers and programs that are usually only found in private schools.

My students come from very diverse socioeconomic backgrounds, where 65% of students are on free or reduced lunch.

We have a student population of about 600 students in the high school, many of whom are actively involved in marching band, sports, and student government.

My anatomy students are going the extra mile taking an additional (not required) science credit, many determined to find a future career helping others through healthcare.

I structure my classroom to meet the needs of students, and to help them find the meaning and practical application of science.

My Project

"Who Are You?" That's the question we attempt to answer everyday in this hands on approach to science as they perform techniques used by actual forensic scientists in order to solve mock mystery.

"Tell me and I forget.

Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn."- Benjamin Franklin

There is no better approach to help students gain a turn love and appreciation for science content. This hands-on, engaging, and practical nature of Anatomy helps peak their interest and reignites their curiosity in science. Gone are they days of getting simply getting lost in the theory behind complex lectures and dense textbooks in the science classroom.

Imagine that you are hiking in the woods when suddenly you stumble upon what appears to be a human skull. Upon closer inspection, you notice some other bones in the area. The authorities are called and immediately begin to investigate the scene. You may wonder whose job it is to identify the remains you have just found and how they even go about doing just that.

In this case, a forensic anthropologist would be called on to assess the bones and make that determination.

Students take on the role of a forensic anthropologist to lean about the skeleton in a real world application.
