1.1 Identify some bones that make up the skeletal system.
II. Subject Matter
Topic: The skeletal System
A. Science Concept/Idea:
Skeletal system is the framework of our body; it consists of all the bones in the human body.
B. Science Process: Identifying, Inferring, Observing
C. Material: Illustration of skeletal system, a poster or model of a skeleton
D. References: PELC grade VI 1.1 any book in science
E. New Words: framework, skeletal system, backbone, skeleton
F. Background Information for the teacher (BIT)
The skeleton is like a frame. It gives your body shape and support. It supports you body as you move. Some bones protect some vital parts or internal organs of your body.
III. Learning Activities
A. Review of the past lesson
Review the three main parts of the human body – the head, the trunk, and the limbs
B. Unlocking difficulties

(Let the children stand up and sing the song “My toes my knees”)
In our song we’ve touched those parts mentioned.
How does it feel, soft or hard?
What makes a person stand?
Today we will take up bones that make up our skeletal system.
Choose a partner. Let your partner touch your body from head to toes, identifying each
Part touched and let yourself do your partner did to you.
Present the illustration of the skeletal system and let the pupils verify if they have identified the parts correctly.
Identify the different parts of the skeletal system using the illustration
Ask these questions:
1. What is skeletal system? / What are the bones that make up the skeletal system?
2. What are the parts of the skeletal system? / What do you think had helped you to easily identify bones that make up the skeletal system?
Let the pupils identify the parts of skeletal systems through a game.
a. Call on one pupil to be the leader.
The leader says: skull, skull, skull (pointing to the skull) (pause) shoulder (printing to the shoulder to trick the other pupils) b. The leader checks if the pupils were able to point to their shoulder correctly. 1.
c. The leader continuous the game by substituting these parts until the pupils has mastered the parts of the skeletal system.
Respect for one’s body.
