Bones can be complex and mysterious if you can’t see them and feel them. Hands-on learning is really the only way to absorb that much information. In order to learn the bone names, shapes and placements, we put together a life-size skeleton. In order to learn the different types and functions of joints, we played with a skeleton doll.
This seems to me his favorite lesson so far! (And it was perfect for being stuck inside due to cold weather!)
We also took some moments every day to express how creative and attentive to detail God is!!! Studying the abilities and complexities of the human body is a *great* conversation starter about God’s creativity and concern for our well-being.
