Product Description
Mapping the parts of the skeletal system helps students learn the names of the parts and where they are located.

Thank you for considering the “Let’s Map: A The Skeletal System” file. I have found this to be an excellent way for students to learn the different parts of the skeletal system.

When students map a skeleton, they assign colors and/or patterns to each part they need to identify. They fill in the key and the corresponding part. In the example on the right, the student chose red with black stripes for the sternum and then colored the sternum using that pattern and color combination.

This file includes two types of skeletal system maps:
1. A skeleton with the parts listed along the side
2. A skeleton with arrows that allows the student to fill in the parts (this works well when parts have more than one name)

Each type of map comes in three versions:
A skeleton with 23 parts
A skeleton with 21 parts
A blank version you can customize with the number of parts your students need to know

You can have your students use solid colors to differentiate between the parts or you can let them run wild and choose patterns and designs. Either way, this activity is great for referencing what they’ve learned. It works well in an interactive journal, and as a classroom and hallway bulletin board display.

If you have any questions or suggestions concerning this activity, please email me at ahousecalledhome@gmail.com.

Thank you,
