Learning about Skeletons

We are doing a unit on the skeleton.  I am LOVING it!  We made play-do bodies with and without tooth picks to emphasize the importance of bones for our bodies ability to be able to stand upright.  Simple, yet fun.  It was a great way to include the youngest in a more difficult lesson.  The older two, of course, had to give a bit more verbal detail and such, but everyone got to participate. 

Please note:  I do have boys, so of course the bodies had to be super heroes of some sort, complete with swords in hand.  Gotta love those boys.

We are also making a paper skeleton to add organs and muscles to as we continue our body study.  Awesome!
