Third graders learn about bones and muscles

Students in Karen Wearmouth's third grade class check out an animal skull as they learn all about the skeletal system.
Third grade students are completing a unit on the skeletal and muscular systems. Video clips, nonfiction text and online activities were explored. Ask your third grade student about a ball and socket joint or what they learned from “Whack-A-Bone”. How many bones are in the body? Why does a baby have more bones than we do? Why does your arm appear thicker when you flex? Teeth are hard. Are they bones? What makes your body move? No bones about it, this was an exciting unit!
