Use this worksheet (.pdf) to help children learn the major bones in the skeletal system. They can match each bone to the correct name and then make a paper skeleton model by cutting out each bone and putting the pieces together and coloring them if they wish to.

Did you know that your bones will continue to grow until you are around 25 years old? Bones can also repair themselves. Small cracks form in bones all the time from bumping into objects and doing strenuous activities like running and jumping. But these cracks are rarely noticed by us because they are repaired quickly by special bone cells.
