Our Muscles Lesson Plan introduces students to the muscles of the body, including the different types, plus the most common muscles. During this lesson, students are asked to work collaboratively, with a partner, to trace the outlines of their bodies and draw and label the different muscles found in the body. Students are also asked to answer multiple choice questions about muscles, demonstrating their understanding of the lesson material.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define muscle, and identify and locate the different muscles of the human body, as well as define related terms.
