Activity Idea - X-ray rubbing
Make a bone rubbing like Sam did in the Part 1 video. Print out the bird skeleton from the Downloadable Resources area below, ideally on cardstock. Have an adult cut out the skeleton, and then glue it on another sheet of paper. Put another paper over the skeleton and use a pencil to color gently over the skeleton.
