Exploring the skeletal system
by, Christine Marth and Leigh Mikulka
Earth Spirit came into the fourth grade on Tuesday. The fourth graders have been learning about the skeletal system in science. Mr. Jon brought in the skeleton of a moose. Each class had an opportunity to challenge their teamwork skills and put the moose skeleton back together. As they added each bone in the appropriate place Mr. Jon explained the reason for the shape of each bone. The students also loved to learn the history of this particular moose. They had a wonderful time with Mr. Jon and look forward to see what he has in store for his next visit.
