What Did We Learn About The Human Body:
This is Akeem showing how our food goes down our esophagus and into our stomach. In the stomach the food turns into mush by strong juices.
When I was born I had 300 bones. When I finish growing I will have 206 bones.Our skeleton helps us stand and protects our organs. If we did not have bones we would be floppy like gelatin.Our skull protects our brain and our ribs protect our heart.Our humerus is in our arm, some people call it the funny bone. Our femur is our biggest bone in our body.
Our bones are super strong. The inside is made up of bone marrow. Bone marrow looks like the inside of whopper candy.
Our spine is also very important. It helps us stand and move but it also connects to our brain. Our spine is like a highway, it allows our brain to send messages to our body and back to the brain.
Our muscles cover our bones. The muscles pull on our bones to help us move, lift, play sports and much more.
Our heart is about he size of my fist.
It is also very import as it pumps blood around our body. It is part of the circulatory system. Our blood takes oxygen, nutrients, antibodies and much more around our body. Our heart is like an engine in a car.
Respiratory and Circulatory System
Our respiratory system is what makes us breathe. We need oxygen to live and grow. My blood brings the nutrients, antibodies and oxygen around my body.
The heart pumps blood around the body.
We need food to fuel our body. Our body has to break down our food. This is called digestion. It starts in your mouth, when you chew and swallow your food. It goes to the stomach where a very strong juice makes our food into mush. The mush then goes into our small intestine. It takes out all the important things like nutrients and vitamins that my body needs. The mush is then taken to the large intestine, which gets rid of all the stuff we don’t need. That’s where #2 comes from.
