About bones

I find that many of my students have unhelpful ideas about their bones.  Here are some helpful ones:

The bones in my body...

are ALIVE!
- are made of resilient, spongy, elastic material.
- are shock-absorbing.
- contain movement within them.
- have fluid inside: bones are where the red blood cells are created.
- are not a solid, unmoving mass.
- are weight-bearing; they are strong!
- are made to hold me up and give me shape.
