Picture of Puzzle  Skeleton
This project provides an opportunity to learn about the human skeleton.Today not only the children even most of the  adults does not know much about the human skeleton.
I have done this skeleton  project as a puzzle with multi coloured foam rubber which will be intersting for the children to play as a puzzle and in the mean time they learn about the Human skeleton.
Children from five years onwards can learn as a puzzle and children from seven or eight years onwards can learn about the human skeleton.
This is a very good device for hands on learning.

Step 1: Requirements

Picture of Requirements
Multi colored Foam rubber
Uhu spray
Top pins
Pencil
Ruler
Pen
Scissor
Black pen with thin nib(cd writting pen is good)
Sharp  pointed cutting blade
Working board
Eraser (Incase you need)
White tissue paper (Not in cluded in the picture)
Embroidery scissor (not included in the picture)

Step 2: Decide the colour

I decided on orange and black ,so that it can go in to halloween contest too.If not I would have prefered two light colour foam rubber  sheets.
Shake the Uhu spray very well and spray it on to one foam sheet ( Black)and paste the other orange sheet over it .I placed a thick heavy book on top of it for a while.Within a couple of minutes both the sheets were well pasted together.

Step 3: Copy skeleton

I copied a  skeleton sketch  from a book to a white tissue paper.Then I placed the right side of the carbon on top of the  orange foam rubber sheet. Now carefully I  positioned the tissue paper  image in the middle of the foam sheet over the carbon paper and put the top pins on top of it ,so that the papers would not move while tracing the image.With a ball point pen I traced   the skelton  and took the image on to the foam rubber. Woohh...It came out very well just in the middle as  how I wanted.

This is a really cool idea for kids to learn the human body ....Especially kids like to make puzzles. So yes...they would play with it as kids and subconsciously the form will stick in their mind and later it will be quite natural for them when they again learn the parts of the human body...very good....wish i had this when i was a kid....:-) but i guess i can make it for my kids...only the cutting would have to be done patiently. :-D

Really cool idea. Might need a steadier hand (or laser cutter) to try this with more bones.
