Fun with skeleton bones in preschool

Today the children had their Halloween party and there were all kinds of activities the children participated in. These children worked together to build a skeleton.

They started with the head and worked their way down the body adding arms and hands and legs. The discovered that each arm and leg and two bones.

I was really amazed at how the children were able to figure out where each bone went.

By starting with the head and working our way down the skeleton piece by piece – the children were able to deduct what might come next.
