I found this video on a website call Wimp.com, it has family friendly videos. Which is nice because maybe you can find something that you can sometime share with your students. This video is SO fake but your student will most like buy right in to it. So take a looksee.

Anyways... The rib cage is the students first name. I have them fold a piece of paper and have them write thier name as big as the paper. Then I draw line on the paper using a Colored marker (this is so they know where to cut) It works great for the ribs. The Skull was done with Metallic markers....
Students did a great job... I am just not happy...
original works. I start out by giving the students a black 9"x12" paper, and they get 2 strips of color paper which is about 3"x 10" maybe. We talk about Matisse, and positive and negative space, and different types of shapes (geometric and organic). Also we really talk about the color wheel. I show the student a few trick on how to cut things out, and then I let them go at it. It is a good project if you have a scrap box.

This is a great website that talks about colors, and the meaning of colors. It is really cute to show your students if you have few minutes to view it with them.
