Looking for some hands-on ways to bring your anatomy studies to life? The University of Texas at Austin’s Department of Anthropology has some wonderful freebies to help.
The fantastic printables include:
- A life-sized adult skeleton
- A life-sized child skeleton in B&W or color
- 9-piece scramble puzzles of Prosimian Skulls, Prosimian Skulls and Hominoidea Skulls
- Word searches on Skeletal Anatomy for elementary, middle school and high school levels
- Crossword puzzles on teeth and skeletons for elementary, middle school and high school levels
- And more!
The printable skeletons are especially helpful. The adult skeleton is 21 pages and can be taped to the wall for kids to label (or use for a spin-off of a pin the tail on the donkey game). The child skeletons are the size of an average five or six year-old child and use eight pages. The B&W version is great for coloring and labeling, while the color version is more realistic.
The site also includes additional links, lyrics to “Dem Bones” and more resources for educators.
