In Skeletal & Muscular Systems, students learn that bones and muscles work together to protect our bodies and enable them to move. They'll discover that, in addition to providing support for our bodies and protecting vital organs, bones are where blood is manufactured! Viewers also learn that bones are classified by shape -- long, short, flat and irregular -- and that there are three types of muscles -- skeletal, smooth and cardiac. Vivid examples and colorful graphics illustrate how joints work with the help of connective tissues like cartilage, ligaments and tendons. An orthopedic surgeon explains how bones heal, and a fun, hands-on experiment shows how calcium is essential for strong, healthy bones.

This title correlates to the National Science Education Standards for Life Science: structure & function in living systems, reproduction & heredity, regulation & behavior, populations & ecosystems, and diversity & adaptations of organisms.
