My mom was a middle school science teacher for many years. One of the learning materials she purchased for her classroom was a life-size replica of a human skeleton.
That skeleton made many appearances at our house for Halloween over the years, and when my parents downsized their home they passed the skeleton on to me. Although a few joints are coming loose, it has been a fun way to teach my kids about their bones.
Today I am releasing a set of Skeleton 3-Part Cards that can be used in lessons to teach your children about the human skeleton. (These cards are included in my Human Body Printables Bundle.)
These Montessori-style nomenclature cards can be used to help children learn to identify key bones in the human body.
Note: You’ll find more resources for learning about the human body on my Human Body Unit Study page.
Each card features a complete skeleton with the target bone(s) colored blue so it can easily be identified among the others in the body.
My Skeleton 3-Part Cards include the following 18 images:
For each object, there is a picture and label card, a picture-only card, and a label-only card.
