Yes, calisthenics (jumping jacks, lunges, sit-ups, push-ups etc, all using your own body weight as resistance) do burn fat, but you have to be vigorous about them and do many sets in order to do so.  Most people find them hard to do enough of to get much fat-burning benefit from, so they are usually incorporated into a wider fitness regime, such as walking/jogging or swimming for the cardio and fat-burning benefits, then adding calisthenics at the end or in the middle of the workout to tone/strengthen muscles.
