Skeletal & Muscular Systems
The song of choice for our study of the skeletal system is "Them Not-So-Dry Bones" by Schoolhouse Rock - Daddy remembers watching those cartoons as a kid on the weekend!
The Interactive Skeleton is a great tool to learn all about the anatomy of bones. We used it as a guide to label our skeleton model.
We watched a National Geographic video on bone stretching in China, a painful surgical procedure to make people taller. It's very scary...
It makes sense to learn about our muscles and joints in tandem with our bone study. Serena particularly enjoyed this muscular system video because she learned a new term that made her giggle: Gluteus Maximus.
Sing "Muscles Make You Stronger" and dance with a skeleton!
