Materials List: So What Is the Density?

Each group needs:

For the class to share:

  • disarticulated human skeleton model of fabricated bones; see note below for two options
  • graduated cylinders of various sizes to accommodate the various bone sizes; groups select one cylinder at a time, depending on the bone being measured
  • rulers and meter sticks

Two options for fabricated bones, both available from Anatomy Warehouse:

  1. One-half disarticulated budget skeleton anatomy model with skull, SKU# A-102704 for $82.25; see
  2. Axis Scientific complete disarticulated human skeleton, SKU# A-104406 for $210; see; this very detailed model has the bony landmarks seen on real bones, making it more realistic than the less-expensive option; it is also a full skeleton, and thus has more bones
