SCIENCE: Get Ready for the Musculoskeletal System!

Posted on February 3, 2012. Filed under: Science | Tags: , |

The next system we’ll be studying is the musculoskeletal system!

DID YOU KNOW?  There are 206 bones in the human body.

You will be responsible for learning the scientific names of some of the bones in the human body; many are listed in the photo to the left.  (You can get started with those now!)

DID YOU KNOW?  Humans have over 500 muscles.

You’re also going to be studying the different types of joints, and how the muscles, tendons, and ligaments all work to make it possible for us to move.

Take a look at this video for an overview of some of the things we’re going to learn in this unit:

This unit seems cool and fun

I didn’t know either of those facts. Cool!

the unit seems very interesting, and i would like to know more about it.

I thought it was interesting that we have a tail bone.

It’s so cool that there are 500 muscles in our body and 206 bones in our body. This unit sounds cool 🙂

I think that its really cool that we have over 500 muscles in our body!
