The printable life-size skeleton gives the students an opportunity to build a model of how their own bodies look inside. They can handle the printed bones, move them around and even try them on!
The printable bones are scaled so that their size would be right for an average eight-year-old child, but should also fit reasonably well children who are two years younger or older. If you have a child who is significantly smaller, print the pages at a reduced scale (80 or 90%).
Life-Size Skeleton Features
- all the bones for making a skeletal system model
- the bones come in two versions: with their names written on them and without any text
- reference card for providing the key + information sheet on the skeletal system
