Friday was spent learning about the bones of the skeletal system, and muscles were Monday’s topic. Students participated in a lab Monday morning where they used chicken wings to see how the muscles, bones, and tendons work together to move joints. Students also experimented with breaking a bone to see what impact it had on muscle function. Upon completing the lab, students understood how opposing pairs of muscles work together to create movement through pulling rather than pushing. Class ended on Monday with students studying the muscles of the face and the movements and expressions they create. A lot of funny faces were made trying to isolate and move the individual muscles. Below are some pictures from our morning lab.
