Ch 24: The Skeletal System & Connective Tissue - Middle School Life Science: Homeschool Curriculum

About This Chapter

The Skeletal System and Connective Tissue unit of this Middle School Life Science Homeschool course is designed to help homeschooled students learn about parts of the skeletal system and connective tissue. Parents can use the short videos to introduce topics, break up lessons and keep students engaged.

Who's it for?

This unit of our Middle School Life Science Homeschool course will benefit any student who is trying to learn what makes up the skeletal system and how it's connected. There is no faster or easier way to learn about the skeletal system and connective tissue. Among those who would benefit are:

  • Students who require an efficient, self-paced course of study to learn about bones, tendons, connective tissue functions, osteoblasts and the basic operation of bones.
  • Homeschool parents looking to spend less time preparing lessons and more time teaching.
  • Homeschool parents who need a life science curriculum that appeals to multiple learning types (visual or auditory).
  • Gifted students and students with learning differences.

How it works:

  • Students watch a short, fun video lesson that covers a specific unit topic.
  • Students and parents can refer to the video transcripts to reinforce learning.
  • Short quizzes and a Skeletal System and Connective Tissue unit exam confirm understanding or identify any topics that require review.

Skeletal System and Connective Tissue Unit Objectives:

  • Review the basic function and purpose of bones and the human skeletal system.
  • Compare osteoblasts vs. osteoclasts and their relationship to bones.
  • Understand the function of joints.
  • Learn about fibrous connective tissue, such as tendons and ligaments.
