Students will learn the basic anatomy that comprises our spine and be able to identify the major components. Additionally, students will gain and understanding of the basic of why our spine and brain are so important for their growing bodies! Students will also work to be able to identify all components of their spinal cord, using both interactive activities and songs to enhance retention of information, in addition to building their own crafty candy spine! By the end of the class, students will be able to identify and label both the components of our spine as well as demonstrate in a hands on fashion the importance of different components of our nervous system in daily tasks.
