I threw this activity together really quickly. We had a few sheets of blank address labels, and I grabbed a red permanent marker. I made a quick strip across the top and bottom of the address labels and then wrote in black marker, “Hello my name is” with the bone names below.
Bone Identification Activity
After I wrote out the names of the bones, I tested my kids on what they knew. They recalled most of the bones from gym class lessons, but we had a few that needed practicing. For the second grade and kindergarten physical education curriculum, they had to know:
We had a blast sticking the labels all over ourselves while saying “Hello my name is humerus!” in funny voices. While we had the labels on our body parts, we practiced the motions of that bone. We talked about how that bone could move and what it could do. Yes, your humerus has a job in picking up a sandwich!
Even the baby doll got in on the bone labeling action.
How cute are those tarsals??
