Pasta Anatomy: Dem Bones



I pinned this craft awhile back from my good friend Martha.
{Maybe you know her too?}

I showed it to Ethan and he was loving it and asking about it, 
so tonight we finally got a chance!!
E loves science, and he totally enjoyed this project.

So here is another new friend joining us for this Halloween-ish week...

Mr. Funny Bones


{pardon the glue still drying!}

I gathered the different pasta shapes and aside
from the pasta, we just used elmer's glue and construction paper.

The pasta types we used were...


mini and regular size penne
ditalini
lasagna
fettuccine
elbow
rotini

I could not find dry alphabet soup noodles, so we skipped the labeling.
Not a big deal.  

We gave our skeleton a little bow tie.
{Didn't think of that Miss Martha did you?!}

He also really wanted the skeleton to have a leg and foot 
so we made up our own. 

We also looked at some anatomy pictures to learn while doing.  


Had to include this catchy tune!


I think we wore out this Scholastic Video when we rented
it from our library this summer!!
{it also has The Wheels on The Bus, the absolute fave}


Enjoy!
