Name Those Bones

This activity will take quite a while for preparation, but it's worth it in the long run. You will need to create to-scale models of bones in the human skeleton. You may want to use all 206 bones, or just the major ones, depending on your particular needs. Have students place the skeleton parts on the bulletin board in the correct layout. You will also need to create word cards for the names of the bones so students will be able to label each bone. The best way to have the students attach the bones is to make them out of flannel or laminate tag board replicas and use Velcro stripping to attach them. They can then label the parts by placing the word cards around the edge of the skeleton and using string to point to each bone.
