Please find attached a powerpoint presentation and 2 different skeleton templates for a skeleton based making lesson.
I pitched this to my low ability Y7. I gave the simpler model to my weak ability group and connected all of the parts using split pins. The other skeleton gave to my higher ability. They got on well and created some large skeletons. To further them, I printed some generic information sheets and got them to label up on the back the names of the different parts.
