Sketch a Skeleton

In this activity (on pages 15-18 of PDF), learners make a life-size two-dimensional paper model of their own skeletons. They trace a partner onto a large piece of butcher paper, and then the partner returns the favor. Next, they draw in all the major bones of the body. Finally, they cut out the different bones so the skeleton becomes a puzzle.
