Scientastic Dr. Diagnosis

Lesson Plan (PDF)

After viewing the Scientastic! episode, “Sticks and Stones,” students will further explore the anatomy of bones, diagnosis of broken bones, and healing and regenerative medicine in this hands-on learning activity. 

Students travel to six stations in pairs or groups where they will read a short story about a person who broke a bone and view an x-ray and model of the broken bone. They “repair” each bone with a set of materials, such as a scaffold made of salt dough, and record their diagnoses in a medical journal. After, they discuss their findings with their classmates.
