"Humerus" Bone Pictures (Get it?)

Today we did something that was a fun way to look at some of our bones and learn some bone names. I supplied a lot of different shaped pasta, glue, and big pieces of black paper. The children began by looking at pictures and diagrams of the human skeleton and arranged their pasta pieces to recreate all or part of the body. We are still waiting for some to dry - lots of glue was necessary - but others were ready for display. Over the next few days we will be looking at some of the x-rays families have provided, and learning a lot more about bones.

Lots of different shapes - Hmmmm, I wonder what would work?

A labeled skeleton diagram and some examples to inspire

Experimentation time

Ariana chose the arm and labeled some of the bones.

Here are some on display. Others will be added soon!
