SCIENCE: SKELETAL AND MUSCULAR SYSTEMS

We have spent the last 2 weeks learning about skeletons and muscles. Once again we read lots of books and viewed a few videos and YouTube clips.

We assembled a large skeleton and put it on the front door. Perfect timing for Halloween.

This is JJ’s essay.

Skeletal and Muscular Systems

Skeletal system is made of bones and joints. It protects my heart and lungs with ribcage, and brain with skull. It holds me up so I am not a blobby mess.

Muscular system is part of your body. It moves my skeleton. Those are skeletal muscles. Smooth muscles move my heart and digestive system. They are involuntary. Voluntary means I make them move, involuntary I don’t make them move.

Some of the resources we used. These are affiliate links, I only add them if I recommend them.
