Today, Landon handed in her first project as a 3rd grader. She had to make and label a skeleton. Being a Biology nerd, I loved this assignment. I was a bit surprised that she would be memorizing bones at 8, since I never knew my kneecap was a patella until well into Middle school. The days of learning to color and cut, tying our shoes and napping on mats in Kindergarten is a thing of the past. I should have known 3rd grade advanced, too.

Landon decided to use pipe cleaners and straws to build her skeleton friend, Skelly. She quickly noticed the hands would be huge if she made each finger, so she opted to draw every tiny bone on a piece of index card and just attach it to Skelly. She needed to show every detail and spent many hours getting each one perfect. I was so proud of her. It looks great!

A Halloween themed project was perfect for Fall. Skelly will make a great addition to our decorations!

Way to go Landon. I can't wait to show this off to the 3rd grade teachers at my school.
