This 2-day, 55-slide PowerPoint lesson on the Muscular and Skeletal System begins with an overview of the purposes of these systems. It then covers the muscular system, with a focus on skeletal muscles before covering the skeletal system. Each section closes with an overview of disorders.

The student version of the PowerPoint contains multiple blanks that need to be filled in throughout the lesson. These blanks are conveniently underlined and bolded on the teacher copy. I have found this to be the most effective means of keeping my students engaged and active without having them write everything out. This also leaves more time for discussion and activities.
