Skeleton model

We finished our skeleton model this week, as well as the corresponding chapter in Blood and Guts.

In the picture, the models are being held onto a magnetic bar by magnets embedded into color plastic spheres that I placed in the eye sockets.

My kids also taped their thumbs to their palms and tried to do their daily activities that way. It lasted 30 minutes.

At Halloween I always get a huge paper skeleton for us to label the bones and put up on our school room wall. The kids look forward to this. One year, I got wooden mini bodies that we painted white and stuck pre-made stickers on the bones (they were younger then). We've also used The Body Book, which I love!
