Labeling the Skeletal System

Students Label the Bones of the Skeletal System with a Graphics Program

Students annotate an image, labeling the various bones of the skeletal system. Students will use the skeleton diagram below to help them find the locations and names of the bones.

Students add the names of the bones on a plain picture of a boy or girl using a basic paint program or image editor such as Preview (MAC) or Paint.NET (Win) for this exercise.

The free graphics program used here is Paint.NET
