Human Skeleton Unit Study
We have been learning all about the human skeleton. It’s been quite a ride! You won’t believe what bones are made or and how important bones are for our bodies.
It is beyond just keeping you upright. Below are some of the questions we asked and researched. It will be a great way to start this great study!
Questions to ask or research about:
- Where is the red blood cell made?
- What is the appendicular skeleton?
- What body parts are included in the human skeleton?
- What are some limited ranges of motion on arms and legs?
- What is the axial skeleton?
- What is the vertebral column?
- Can you name a single bone without help?
- Can you name the small bones in your inner ear?
- Can you feel your hip joints?

More Skeleton Resources
We also used other props and fun stuff like foam skeleton puzzles, a skeleton stamp and organ mini replicas. We also used a vintage brain stamp (side view) and a vintage brain stamp (top view), even though we were focusing on the human skeleton. It was just fun to include them.
The foam puzzles are labeled, front and back, which is awesome and the pieces do come out. We were very careful while taking the pieces out and putting them back in. We would name the names of the bones as we were putting them back.
That is how I realized how much they were remembering. It was a proud momma moment. 🙂
Here is a really fun homeschool printables set!
Human Skeleton Free Printable Set
And now, for the printables. Take a look at this awesome! I didn’t want this post to turn out to be too long by adding more pictures, but I did want to make sure you saw what the printables look like. You and your children will love them!
We have an awesome set. There are four levels of difficulty. We did them all, but my youngest only did the first two sets with us and watched Bother and me do levels “Hard” and “Hardest.”
Ready to learn about the skeletal system?
Level 1: This free printable skeleton diagram is the basic one. Kids will learn basic names of the skeleton. Place the 2 sheets side by side. Have your child copy the names onto the blank skeleton chart.
Level 2: This set of free skeleton printables is more detailed than the level one sheets. One shows names of the arms and the second sheet shows names of the head and torso.
Your child can pick 3-5 (to begin with) on each sheet and memorize them. The child should also be able to hear the name of that part and point it out on the chart.
Once the child has learned the 3-5 names, then go for another 3-5 and make it a game!
Level 3: This skeleton body parts printable shows the back side of a skeleton. It is a labeled human skeleton. See if your child can find and name any of the names that they memorized in level 2.
Level 4: This awesome leaning skeleton puzzle worksheet is my daughter’s favorite. It consists of 2 sheets. One has a full skeleton and the other has a scrambled skeleton all over.
She first finds a bone on the body and number it. Then, she finds that same part on the other sheet and number it the same number. See the photo below.
I would recommend printing all of them and use them together, since some will be helpful as answer keys to others in other levels. Once you see them printed, you’ll know what I mean.
