Anatomy for a Four Year Old

Troubles has always been interested in the skeletal system. He learned phalanges right along with fingers, he'll mention how he can point with his scapula (double jointed-ness), and complain when he bangs his tibia. Due to his interest in anatomy, I thought of him when I saw this set at a garage sale for $2. Everyone enjoys getting these out, but the skeletal system always goes to him.



Today, he found these cards (ribcage if you can't tell) and put the front view on his chest and the back view on his back and said, "This is how they go!" I taught him "Anterior" and "Posterior", but he couldn't recall those words later. Just hanging hooks...
