Them Bones!

 I saw this project at my friend, Terri’s classroom several years back.  It is such a great way to introduce the bones.  I had two parents come in and help the children paint their bones.  We will be learning the major bones over the next two weeks.
 The first step is to trace the child’s outline with a white crayon on black bulletin paper.
 Next, the children paint the major bones in white tempera paint.
 I found a great fold out book on a clearance table at Borders a few years ago that the children can look at.  It is about their size!! So cool!
Here’s the mastermind behind this super idea!  Love you Terri Girl!
