For this assignment, students will be able to identify the key components of a different skeletal system based on prior knowledge, compare them to the human skeleton, and make an inference about functionality.
Click on the learning points (the yellow “+”) on the picture to learn gain more information on the skeletal parts. As you read, be aware that you will need to answer the following questions: “Compare and contrast the skeletal system of a human, which we have been examining for the last six weeks, and the skeleton of the ostrich. How does the ostrich’s skeleton differ from a human’s? Why do you think that is? Can you find two more dissimilarities that should be included on the image?”
