In order to learn about the locomotive system we made a funny activity using the interactive white board and also the skeleton model.

As a group of three or four was labelling some bones on the skeleton at one part of the classroom, the rest of the students were playing interactive games on the white board. Games like “Whack-A-Boneand Poke-A-Muscle.


The flashcards to label the skeleton have both: the English and Spanish name of the bone, but also the common and the more scientific name (like shoulder blade for scapula) and even there is a number to indicate how many of this bones we have in our body (v.gr. scapula -2-).

During these sessions, Johanna the assistant teacher was also in the classroom, so with the two of us inside we could better manage these activities.

We had fun and we learnt, that´s perfect.

I havve found these useful lessons about the senses from The Children’s University of Manchester (Interactive, online learning for key stage 2 from The University of Manchester, even if our syllabus fits ks3 and 4, we can get a profit from this good visual resources)

About the ear: How do we hear? –You will learn the anatomy of the ear, how it works, and some curious data. By the mid lesson there is a labelling activity and at the end a Quiz.

Same plot about the eye: How do we see?

In the brain and senses Unit from this web page we can find also information about our body’s control centre (the brain)  smell, taste and sensitivity of the skin.

Games: Time to play? Then here you are a Brain and Senses word search or you can try finding the matching pairs!

Here and here we have some optical ilusions.

A common lab practice in 4ESO is the DNA Extraction, before doing it in the laboratory it could be good to check this virtual practice.

In this slide presentation the process of DNA extraction is explained to make you understand its  scientific basis:

If you prefer watching a video, you can check this bilingual explanation of the lab practice.

May be you are wondering why did we add soap or detergent? or why did we add pineapple juice or tenderizer?

You can get a pdf script and more information from this excellent link:

And here by, you have a quick script to do this lab practice (based on this other one)

Home made DNA Extraction- Easy  Protocol:

  • Smash your organic sample until you get a soupy mixture. What we are going to want to use is the homogeneous solution in the middle. You probably won’t need all of this but it’s good to have extra just in case.
  • Add one tablespoonful of dish washing detergent (or soap) and a pinch of salt (NaCl) to the above solution. Slowly stir this for five minutes.
  • Add some drops of pineapple juice (or a pinch meat tenderizer) to the above solution. Again, stir for five minutes.
  • Pour and filter enough of the solution into your container to a level of two inches or so. Pour slowly out of the blender so you get the middle layer of solution.
  • Drizzle (Tilt the container and pour SLOWLY down the inside of the glass) cold alcohol into the above container. If you do this correctly, a clear layer of alcohol will be floating on top of the denser split pea solution. Add enough alcohol so there is a three inch layer above the split pea solution.
  • Now, let the container sit and observe the alcohol layer.

“STOP DISASTERS” es un juego on-line para aprender las medidas básicas para prevenir los daños causado por desastres como terremotos, tsunamis, incendios, huracanes o avenidas aluviales.

Puedes elegir entre diferentes idiomas para jugar y también el nivel de dificultad. La partida dura unos diez minutos en los que tienes que implantar las medidad adecuadas  para prevenir el desastre, guiado por ciertos consejos. Tras ese tiempo sucede el fenómeno y si tus medidas fueron las correctas puedes haber salvado a la población.

La EIRD (Estrategia Internacional para la Reducción de los Desastres) pertenece a  las Naciones Unidas y es la responsable de este proyecto didáctico.
