Color the Bones of the Hand


Learning the names of the bones of the hand can be challenging.  This coloring worksheet can be used with a lesson how how to locate each of the bones.  I also teach students a mnemonic, though they still need to establish where the scaphoid bone is for the mnemonic to work.   They find each of the bones and then color them whatever they want, matching the color with the box on the key.  They also identify the number that goes with each bone.
