Today we began our skeleton models from The Body Book as we read the chapter about bones in Blood and Guts.
I had them complete the axial skeleton only; we'll add on the appendicular skeleton next week. I used all card stock because the digestive and respiratory systems will eventually be added on to them. I cut all these pieces out--this model is not for the beginner cutter.
We also learned about the 4 types of bones (long, short, flat, irregular) and how bones mineralize with calcium and phosphate.
