Silly Skeletons, 2nd grade

Last week, I had my second graders create Silly Skeletons, which was perfect timing because they have recently been studying the skeletal system in health class. This lesson could also be tied into Halloween or the Day of the Dead.
I began by having my students draw a skeleton with a white pastel. After the skeleton was drawn, students used white tempera paint to paint the skeleton. Lastly, students decorated their skeletons. My only rule was that these skeletons had to be silly and not scary. They were not allowed to add blood or guts.
I think these turned out GREAT!
