Learn the bones in the human body
Do you know the names of all the bones in the human body? Here is a handy list of the names of all the bones in the human body along with clipart. See which ones you already know.

Two Labeled Skeletons
AN A TO Z RESOURCE
The first has common English names for the bones, the second has the medical terms.

Broken Bones

The Facts About Fractures and Broken Bones
Breaking a bone can be a pretty big deal, but it happens to lots of kids. These days, most broken bones are easily fixed, but it can still be scary when it happens to you or a friend.

Build Your Own Skeleton

How To Make An Animatronic DIY – Dr. N00Bz Lab Ep4
You may want to try recording your own voice and putting it on an iPod inside your creature.

Pasta Skeleton Craft
This pasta skeleton is easily made from a few different types of pasta and dried beans glued to a piece of black construction paper.

Skeleton Lesson: Meringue Bones
Baked meringue is brittle, so make your bones thicker than you may think you need to make them. If you have leftover meringue, go back over the piece you’ve already made and thicken them up. For tiny bones like the phalanges and metacarpals and whatnot, it’s easier to not make each individual bone, but rather make a little web with all the bones touching.

Sock Skeleton Project
Stuff you’ll need to get: One pair of calf-length white cotton sports socks for each sock skeleton you want to make, thread, needle, scissors, stuffing material, and black Sharpie marker (or embroidery floss if you want to sew the details on).

Clipart

Dance along with these Thriller skeletons!

Skeleton clipart and illustrations

Experiments with Bones

Knotted Bones
What makes our bones hard?  That’s right!  Calcium carbonate. Take some thin chicken bones and drop them in vinegar for a day.  Take them out and they’ll be soft. Now you can tie them in a knot, just like a piece of string.


Healthy Bones

Your Bones
Think back to last Halloween for a minute. Wherever you looked, there were vampires, ghosts, or bony skeletons grinning back at you. Vampires and ghosts don’t really exist, but skeletons sure do!

A History of the Skeleton
Physicians from antiquity through the Renaissance discussed the form and function of the skeleton, as the hardest part of the body. Lots of good antique skeleton clip art.
