skeleton lessons for kids

Little J is learning about the skeletal system in school.  They are learning some basic functions and names of bones.  We had some fun with this on Talk Like a Pirate Day too.  You can see the skeleton game we played here.

Skeleton Lesson plans

I found this skeleton at Michael's and Little J painted him with glow in the dark paint. I know it's not anatomically correct, but it is a fun way to name some bones and talk about them!

He used a sharpie marker to write the names of the bones on the other side of the skeleton.  It's hanging on his floor lamp in his's pretty cool to see at night.

So, from skeletons to hearts...Sassyfras had friendship week and a special friendship fair.  They were paired up with a friend for the fair and she made a felt lavender fill heart to take to her.  It was her first experience with hand sewing.

Juiciness's class is talking about emotions and they are doing some interesting things in his class that I'll share more later this week.  They're using a program called Second Step.

This skeleton is very cool. I am sure my daughter will love this skeleton unit when she gets there. I wish they had more science in school, but she has an afterschool science class now.
