By Dom and Celina
Muscles are a special type of tissue in the human body that have the ability to move all the different bones, but muscles can only pull. Another thing that makes muscles move are joints. Without joints, movement in our body would be impossible.
The muscular system’s main function is movement in body parts, circulation, posture and help in digestion.
If our muscular system didn’t do it’s job, our lungs wouldn’t work (because the lungs are controlled by the diaphragm which is a type of muscle), movement in our body would be impossible and we wouldn’t be able to digest the food we eat (because some parts of the digestive system need muscles to work like the oesophagus).
To keep our muscular system functioning properly, we need to exercise and eat healthy foods with nutrients (and NO additives) to keep our muscles growing properly and at the right pace.
Healthy food (with lots of nutrients) help our muscular system by giving our muscles the energy to grow bigger and bigger as you grow.
Digestive System: The muscular system helps the digestive system by controlling the oesophagus, small intestine, large intestine, rectum and the anus. Respiratory System: The muscular system helps the respiratory system by controlling the diaphragm to make space for the air that gets directed into our lungs.
Skeletal System: The muscular system helps the skeletal system by protecting and moving the bones in our body so we can have movement. Circulatory System: The muscular system helps the circulatory system by letting blood rush through the blood vessels.
We used the following websites: Dictionary.com Kids Biology Healthy Muscles We have gotten lots of the information from these links to put in our presentation for the muscular system!
We hope you all liked our presentation because we worked REALLY hard on our presentation including the information in our work!
