This engaging and hands-on class has your kids building skeletal systems, conducting an experiment with chicken bones, making models of the three types of muscle, and engaging in a workout where they exercise the cardiac muscle and skeletal muscle (cardio and resistance exercise) while they learn the importance of both types of exercise, as well as a warm up and stretch. Week 1- kids learn about the skeletal system and create a skeleton out of clay. Week 2- kids learn how bones protect us...
Students will learn the function of the skeletal system, how it protects us and why calcium is important. Students will label the axial and appendicular bones. Students will learn the three types of musle tissue, tell which are voluntary and involuntary and make and label a model of each type. Students will understand the types of exercise (cardiovascular vs resistance) and their benefits. Students will explain that warmups, cool downs and stretches are to prevent injury and increase flexibilty/range of motion.

Exercise can cause injury. Please seek physician clearance as needed. If your child has any physical limitations, or health concerns, please seek clearance from your doctor before engaging in physical activity. Please have space clear of trip hazards, dry surface, and ruber track shoes to prevent slipage. PLease have a bottle of water and no hand weights heavier than 5 lbs each. Younger children 7-8 should not be heavier than 3 lbs each. Your child will be using clay and materials they should not ingest; supervision maybe needed.
We will be screensharing educational books and vidoes from Epic Books. Books read and/or reference in class: The Skeletal System by Barbara Lowell, and Exercise! by Katie Marisco
