Skeletal System Game

For Inquiry today we learnt 3 body systems which are the Digestive, Nervous and Skeletal systems. The digestive system is usually controlled by the stomach and the nervous system is controlled by your brain. We looked at all the parts of the Human Skeleton and read about the parts. I learnt that the patella (which is known as our knee cap) part of the skeleton is the circular bone that is in front of the knee joints (the patella protects and covers you knee joints). I also learnt that the patella is the largest sesamoid (a bone that is inside a tendon) bone in your body .The fun part today was we played a game where you needed to place all the bone parts of the Human Skeleton in the right place. We had 15 minutes which meant we got to try again and beat our high score. Every bone part we added to the skeleton it added up all the attempts even though if it was right or wrong. My high score was 29. I could do better but it was my first time. We have 11 body systems which are the circulatory, digestive, endocrine, integumentary, lymphatic, muscular, nervous, renal/urinary, reproductive, respiratory and skeletal system. The thing I found interesting was that Little baby that are at birth have 270 bones but as they grow to adulthood the bones decreases to 206 bones after some bones have sticked or combined together.
