The Skeleton

Age Range: 7 - 16

The Skeleton

This activity is based on a worksheet, which has a picture of the skeleton in the centre and some text boxes down the left and right sides. The children are required to do two things:

  • Fill in the Blanks - The text boxes have blank spaces in. The children simply have to fill in the blank spaces with suitable words. You will need to discuss the skeleton before giving the children this sheet, as the answers are quite specific, and children are not likely to know the answers without prior input.
  • Identify the Bones - Each of the text boxes refers a different bone in the body. When the children have filled in the blank spaces, they have to draw a line from the text box to the appropriate bone on the picture of the skeleton.

The worksheet and answer sheet can be found below.

J.S

I have done something similar to this, except we cut out our skeleton and joined the bones (arms and legs) together by split pins, It ended up being a dancing skeleton. They look awesome in the classroom. Kids found it more fun since they were able to craft rather than just a worksheet.
