Seventh Grade collaborative skeleton

Seventh grade science students learned about human anatomy and the skeletal system in the spring. To help the students apply this knowledge, Carli Rivers assigned each student one bone or a set of bones to make out of foam, cardboard, and papier mâché. Carefully, the students worked not only to recreate a scale version of their bone, but also to assemble a full working model of the human skeletal system. The models were wrapped in Gypsona, the same material used to cover casts, to more closely approximate the look and feel of real bone. The larger-than-life model is suspended along the wall of Flag Hall, proudly greeting everyone who walks past.
