We recieved this idea from our parnters at the Kershaw County Schools in South Carolina. These teachers reinforced a healthy bone lesson with an art/spelling project. It’s very easy to create and as you can see, the kids are pretty proud of their bone health.
Just take some blue construction paper and print off large bone for each student and enough for each child to have 5 smaller bones. Give each child 3 Q-tips (or cotton balls) and a pair of scissors. Have them write:
How to Keep Your Bones Healthy on the large bone and glue it to the top of the page.
Then on each of the smaller bones, have them write 5 ways to keep their bones healthy from what they’ve learned. Some examples are:
Cut out each of the smaller bones and glue them below the large one. Add the Q-tips for some flair.
