Halloween Q-Tip Skeletons!

It's time for Halloween!  My students really love to do Halloween activities.  Here is one that I got from my 1st grade team a couple of years ago.  It would be fun for ALL ages and you can even do it at home with your kiddos.  First, we read the book:  Skeleton Hiccups by Margery Cuyler .We always talk about how many bones we have (206 for adults). I show them where their biggest bone is in their body (femur-thigh bone) and the smallest bone in our body (stapes-in the inner ear).


Supplies:
*Skeleton face pattern (or you could just have them draw it on with a white crayon)
*Elmer's Glue
*Q-tips
-Ribs: Q-Tip middles-9 per student (cut the ends off with wire cutters or scissors)
-Bones: Q-Tip cut in half-8 per student
-Fingers/toes: Q-tip ends-20 per student
