skeleton+pasta

Clip to ScrapBook #3

On Enchanted Learning, there is a printout of a skeleton made with pasta. My students have enjoyed this in the past. The downside of it is that it requires a variety of pasta shapes, so it would be advantageous to get some other teachers to go in with you on buying and sharing the pasta. Also, after you buy the variety, you can save it in sealed containers for other years, or add it to soups and casseroles (sp?) for your family. This could be tied in with science by reading a book about skeletons to your class while they do it, or with a study of vertebrate animals, or the milk food group as a source of calcium for strong bones. I love cross-curricular activities!

You can locate this by typing skeleton+pasta in Google.
