    Dem Bones
    By BeaJay

    Clip to ScrapBook
    Have you read the book, Dem Bones? It is more science since it discusses the bones of the body, BUT there is a candy called Dem Bones to go along with this. My third graders will be taking 2 small packages and open them and sort them according to skull, bones, (candy is in shape of bones). They will record their pieces on a table then make graphs. Discussion to follow will include who has the most ???, how many more does Terry have than Rick, who had the most in their packages, anything you can lead them into discussing and using numbers with their responses. I have used this with former 4th and 5th grade students. They may eat the candy after the lesson is completed.
