After completing the 1st Grade ELA Domain about the human body, Mrs. McMahon's class discussed the following question from the Mystery Science website: Why do our skeletons have so many bones?  In this mystery, students consider what would happen if their bodies didn't have bones and why we have over 200 bones. In an activity that combines science with art, they traced their hands with crayons and then added see-through bones with oil to their pictures, making their own skeleton hand or x-ray.
