Build a Classroom Skeleton

Students had a lot of fun working together to assemble our magnetic classroom skeleton!

We talked about how bones are shaped differently. Some bones are short, some are long, some are flat and some are very irregular and funny looking.

Students also discovered some similarities and differences between the human skeleton and the toad and bat skeletons on the science shelf.

They also discovered that the skeleton of any vertebrate can give you a clue to its size and shape!
