Skeletons: Lessons About Bones

 Teaching Two has several clever ideas for teaching children the basics about our bones.

My Life and Kids included Martha Stewart's pasta skeleton's in her list of top 5 crafts for October.
There are many interesting suggestions for teaching all about skeletons listed at Little Giraffes.  I especially like their song and poem ideas.
The site, Be a Bone Builder, has a printable worksheet for identifying and labeling the bones in the human body.
Science Center explains a biology lesson that introduces students to the function of the main bones in the human skeletal system and the cells that make up those bones. details a lesson intended for second grade students that teaches them to draw and label bones in the human skeleton.

Fairy Dust Teaching displays their white on black skeleton paintings that reinforce the concepts they are learning in science.

Apartment Therapy featured a birthday party all about the human body.  The skeleton cake would make a tasty treat to follow up a bare bones lesson.
