• Make no bones about it! 

    Some animals can fly, some can hang by their tails, and some can peel bananas. 
    If you mix up the bones, who knows what an animal could do!

    Students were asked to prepare a picture of the skeletal system of an imaginary animal that can perform the following feats:

    1. Hop.
    2. Fly for short distances.
    3. Hang by its tail.
    4. Look over its shoulder.
    5. Peel a banana.
    6. Climb a tree
    7. Stand erect.
    8. Eat raw chickens.

    Take a look at some of their creations!



    My animal is named Chomper. He can fly about 30 miles per hour but can only go a short distance, hop, hang by it's tail and lots more. He's awesome!



    My owl bunny can hang by its tail, fly short distances, hop, look over its shoulder, climb a tree, stand erect, and eat raw chicken. It can hop by its powerful legs. It can fly by its rainbow colored wings. It can hang by its tail by climbing up a tree and rap its tail around the tree branch and fall. It has an owl head so it can look over its shoulder. It can peel a banana by using its claws. It can climb a tree with its suction cups. It can stand erect with its hind legs. And it eats raw chicken with its fangs. It eats raw chicken because it does not starve to death.

    My animal can hop, fly, hang by its tail, look over its shoulder, peel a banana, climb a tree, stand up, and eat raw chickens. It also has an unknown skeletal system. My animal eats raw chickens because he has fangs. He is half owl and frog, has a monkey's tail, a sharp pair of claws and fingers. He can fly up to 99 miles per  hour. His name is Fangs!

    My animal ,a canapasfly, can hop, fly, hang by its tail, look behind him, peel a banana, climb a tree,  stand erect, and eat raw chickens . I, Jack,  have created my very own canapasfly. His favorite chicken is honey roasted.



    My HiperZiper can do anything...fly, jump, hop, eat raw chickens, stand, hang, climb and peel a banana.  When he flies, he falls. He flies for 10 seconds and then he falls. He shoves raw chickens in his mouth. He runs 1 mile per hour. He hops very slow. He peels bananas fast.


    My monster has good hopping feet to hop, but he doesn't have very good flying skills. He has a very long tail. He has a neck like an owl so he can look over his shoulder. He can peel a banana with his toes and climb with his fingers. The only way he can stand straight is looking straight. He eats raw chickens.



    My banana monster can hop with his long legs.  He flies for short distances using his small wings.  His small tail gives him the ability to hang from things.  He uses the ball and socket joint in his neck to look over his shoulder.  He peels bananas with his long toes.  He climbs trees using his long toes and his short little toes.  He stands erect on his long legs. My banana monster eats raw chickens using his big teeth.

My animal's name is Max. He can hop with his frog legs. My favorite thing he can do is hang by its tail!



    1 Hop. My animal, called the Ogawu, is able to hop because Ogawus are born with “rubber band legs.”

    My animal has separated body parts. Two of the legs are the hopping legs. My animal has wings like a butterfly, but it can not fly long distances. In between the hopping legs is my hanging tail. It swings up high. My animal does not have any shoulders so he can turn his head. My animal has one banana peeling hand so he can eat. My animal also has two climbing tree legs.  He can climb over sixty trees a day.  My animal has ribs so he can stand up tall.  My animal has one eating mouth that has sharp teeth so he can munch on meat.  My animal's name is Larry.

    My animal, the Muffin, is not a predator.  It only kills when it has to for survival. Muffin can fly to escape enemies. My animal has a diet of only bananas but it can eat raw chickens if it has to.  My animal jumps over predators. 



    My creature is called Funky Man. He can hang by its tail by wrapping it around a branch. He peels bananas by clamping his fingers together because he has razor blades on the inside of his fingers. He hops by jumping like a human. It has really strong teeth. It flies by its wings.

    My creature is called a zwartoe. My zwartoe has sharp and unsharp fingers. The sharp fingers can help climb trees and peel bananas, but the unsharp fingers have a button on them so you can just press the button and the point will come out. The zwartoe's tail can help it hang by its tail. My zwartoe can look over its shoulder because its head is like a screw. Its powerful wings help it fly short and long distances. It's bunny like feet help it hop very high. Its wings are sticky so it can help it eat raw chicken. It can stand tall.
