With Halloween decorating ideas being marketed all over America we will see lots of spooky skeletons that creep out the kids. But, have you ever told your children that the bones that make up our skeletons have 6 major functions?
Now, that is important to know and hardly spooky at all.
If we were to look at “just the facts” about what a skeleton is and what is does for every body, I think we may be able to get some “balance” in a learning situation.
Back to my title: Did You Know that Skeletons are Functional Not Creepy?
Here are some questions to challenge your kids with.
Hint:If you don’t already know the answers I’ll give you a cheat sheet of url’s at he end.
Do babies and adults have the same numbers of bones? How many bones are we talking about,then?
What is the longest bone in the human body?
Where is the smallest bone located in the human body?And what a does that bone do?
Can you name the spongy part of bones?
Question #5 What IF you had no bones?
Those are a few question to get you and your family started talking fact about skeletons.
Now, that you know some facts about skeletons what is there to be afraid of?
Don’t let commercialism dictate the best choices for your family.
I am Malika Bourne the No Non-cents Nanna saying Make those good choices!
