Learn about them Bones

Sticking with our human body theme we learned about bones.

In the book How your Body Works (with our beautiful Billy Bones skeleton) there is a activity where you can make your own 'bone'.

This is what you need:
Coloured cardstock

Do this:
Place a piece of cardstock the same length as your straws down. Cover the cardstock with glue. Place the straws on the glue and secure with a few sections of sellotape. Finally role up the creation to make a tube.

What we learn:
 Bones are not solid. If they were you will not be able to move as it would be too heavy. Bone grow in circular tubes that are hollow.

Watch this animated video of the Structure of Bone.

Watch this stop motion film (who said Lego's are just for playing) of how bone heals.

Challenge yourself and learn the various bone types, their uses and the names of all the major bones in your body.

Happy learning.
