This FREE activity features 8 pets that need x-rays, and children have to match the x-rays to the correct pet. After all the x-rays are matched, have your children look closely at each x-ray (this is a great time to get out the magnifying glass) and try to identify any broken bones, as well as any food in each animal's stomach. (The amazingly detailed clipart was created by Teach Smart)

To turn this into a reusable activity that kids can do again and again, I recommend that you laminate the pages and use velcro dots to stick the pieces.
