Draw a simple X-ray with white chalk on black construction paper. Explain that you can see bones on an X-ray and that you are going to draw some bones that you might see in an X-ray of the body. Draw each body part on the chalkboard and then wait for the children to draw that body part on their papers. Start with the head, then the neck and body, then shoulders, arms and fingers. Have a small red heart cut from construction paper to glue the heart on the right side of their skeleton drawings.

Give each child one sheet of 1" graph paper. Show the children how to draw an X in each of the squares by first drawing a diagonal line from the top right corner of the square to the opposite corner, and then a diagonal line from the top left corner of the square to the opposite corner. Invite children to practice making exact X's on the graph paper. For fun, work with small groups of children and help them cross-stitch over their X's. Use yarn and plastic needles.
