Montessori-Inspired Skeleton UnitHuman anatomy can be a fascinating subject, and many children especially enjoy studying bones. A variety of Montessori-inspired skeleton activities can be used to create a multi-level skeleton unit for preschoolers on up.

October is a fun time to study skeletons. While it might be most logical to study the skeletal system as a part of a whole human anatomy unit, the weeks before Halloween add special interest to the study. Of course, a skeleton unit study is great at any time.

Here are some wonderful Montessori-inspired skeleton printables and activities I found online:
