Dem Bones

Last week the Life Education Truck came to our school. We were visited by Harold and Anna. Our class learnt about the Human Body. We also had the Dem Bones kit from House of Science. From these experiences we learnt about the bones in our body as well as the circulatory system, digestive system, nervous system, respiratory system. We created our own skeletons with shapes.


  1. Kia ora Tanemahuta! I'm missing coming to visit you .... and because of this it's even more awesome being able to see your amazing learning on your class blog! I just love learning about the human body - so much so that I nearly trained to be a nurse when I'd finished high school. One of my favourite things is to see how our amazing skeletons all fit together! Your drawings are amazing and it's so exciting to see what great detail you put into them! It's wonderful that you're learning so much about the body through Life Education and the House of Science Box. I can't wait to hear more about your learning when I come back. Keep up the great learning!

  2. Kamusta Tanemahuta. In the weekend we went to sushi and we also went to McDonalds
    and I saw Mary and April. I ate lots and my tummy hurt so I stopped eating and I drank alot and then I went home and watched TV.
    What did you in the weekend?

  3. Kia ora Tanemahuta,
    We are a class of Yr 2 and 3 learners at St Mary's School in Gisborne. We really enjoyed your skeleton slides, because we really liked seeing all the shapes you chose, especially the ones for the heads and ribs. We liked all the colours you chose too. Maybe next time you could also add some labels to show what each of the bones in your pictures were, so we could learn them all too.

    1. Kia ora St Mary's School,
      Thank you for your positive feedback and interest in the bones of the human body. What a great idea! Challenge accepted. The learners of Tanemahuta are identifying bones and will post their new Google Drawing (complete with labels) on their individual blogs. Look out for them :)
