UBC Let's Talk Science strives to improve science, technology, engineering and mathematics literacy through the outreach efforts of members of the research community at the University of British Columbia. Our volunteers work with youth from elementary and secondary schools to ignite science excitement and share their knowledge with eager young minds.
This activity allows students to explore the human skeletal system by discussing how bones and joints work in the hand and feet. Students then trace out their hands and feet and use simple materials to track how the bones work in the hand. This activity is appropriate for primary grades (about K – 2).
