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)
-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
