# CTE Resource Center - Verso - Physical/Occupational Therapy II Task 1018606879

CTE Resource Center - Verso

Virginia’s CTE Resource Center

Identify on a skeleton the bones and major bony landmarks of the lower extremity and pelvis.


Identification should include
  • pelvis/innominate bones
  • ilium (iliac fossa, anterior superior iliac spine [ASIS], anterior inferior iliac spine [AIIS], posterior superior iliac spine [PSIS], and greater sciatic notch)
  • ischium (lesser sciatic notch, ischial spine, ischial tuberosity, superior ramus, and inferior ramus)
  • pubis (superior ramus, inferior ramus, pubic symphysis, obturator foramen, and acetabulum)
  • femur (head, neck, shaft, greater trochanter, lesser trochanter, medial and lateral condyles, medial and lateral epicondyles, and linea aspera)
  • patella (apex, base, and articular surfaces)
  • tibia (medial and lateral condyle, tibial tuberosity, tibial spine, shaft, medial malleolus, and tibial plateau)
  • fibula (head, shaft, lateral malleolus, and styloid process)
  • tarsals (calcaneus, talus, navicular cuboid, and cuneiforms)
  • metatarsals (head, shaft, and base)
  • phalanges (head, shaft, and base).

Process/Skill Questions

  • What is the longest, strongest bone in the body?
  • How are the ASIS and PSIS significant landmarks for postural assessment?
  • What is the layman’s term for lateral malleolus?

The student will investigate and understand life functions of Archaea, Bacteria, and Eukarya. Key concepts include
  1. comparison of their metabolic activities;
  2. maintenance of homeostasis;
  3. how the structures and functions vary among and within the Eukarya kingdoms of protists, fungi, plants, and animals, including humans;
  4. human health issues, human anatomy, and body systems;
  5. how viruses compare with organisms; and
  6. evidence supporting the germ theory of infectious disease.
