Singing and Dancing Bones

Appropriate Age Level
7+

Science Concepts Learned

The names of the bones of the body using a song. You can teach as many bone names as you want, all 206 if wanted. 

Here are all the bones:


Activity/Experiment

The run down of this activity is to put the names of the bones that you want your child to learn into a song, with them making up the song as you go.  Kids learn well through song, so why not learn some biology in the meantime. 

Here is an example of a bone song, that comes from the ever popular Hannah Montana.  You can learn 30 or so bones from it.

Doin' the Bone Dance

When I milk the cow
On uncle earl's farm
I use the ulna bone
That is in my arm

Moo-Yah! 

Everybody knows the bones
Just had to find a way
Everybody know what I'm talking 'bout
That's how I'll get an A

My body's many parts
And this is where it starts
Phalanges I have 10
And Metatarsals then

I got some Tarsals too
I'll put them in my shoe
The Fibula is next
According to my text

Then comes the Tibia
That ain't no Fibia

And now up to my knee
Yeah, yeah, yeah
That's the patella to me

Chorus:
We're doing the bone dance
You study the answers
Again and again til I get it right

We're doing the bone dance
You dance and you learn it
And we won't mess up this test
We'll get it perfect

And now I take it home
With the Parietal bone
It might be crazy
But we learn that way

Temporal and frontal too
And now we're finally through
That makes two hundred & six
I found a way that clicks

Chant: Bone Thugs in the house

We're doing the bone dance
You study the answers
Again and again till I get it right

We're doing the bone dance
You dance and you learn it
And we won't mess up this test
We'll get it perfect... word!
