A Skeletal Table

My class is currently exploring the body: what can it do, what does it look like inside and out, the five senses. At the moment the science table has some bones on it to look at, a skeleton to examine, and a few books on the skeleton and body to read. As part of the exploration, the students did their own portraits of a skeleton using  cotton buds and some glue.

I always enjoy looking at the interpretations created by the students. Some can be quite creative.

    1. Glad it brought a smile to your face Paula. We are changing the table this week. Maybe I will take another picture to show you. And the skeletons? They will stay up for a while longer I think 🙂


  1. Those are fantastic! I love to see artwork from kids. That second one down from the top left looks like a dude skiing downhill after he dropped his sticks. Ha! So cute! They’re all very creative.


  2. I can hear you guys singing along with you work, ‘the knee bone is connected to the thigh bone, la de da de da.’ LOL. I suspect the kids did have fun. I know my grandchildren love skeletons for some reason.


  3. I love the variety of poses and individuality in the skeletons – and I have never seen q-tip ones – I have seen toothpick – but the q-tip ends make better sockets… 🙂 ha!
