Paper Plate Skeleton

Who loves Halloween more than kids? My students have been talking about Halloween for weeks, and have been so excited as it’s been drawing closer. For science this week, I did a lesson on bones. We talked about what would happen to your skin without bones (think: gummy worm) and then I incorporated a hands-on art…… Continue reading Paper Plate Skeleton
