1 My muscles move my body like strings move a puppet. My Muscular SystemMy muscles move my bodylike strings move a puppet.
2 The muscular system is made up of… musclesandtendons
3 How many muscles do I have? I have about 650 muscles in my body.My muscles make up half of my body weight.??? How much do your muscles weigh?
4 My muscles are important because they… Hold my organs in placeHold my bones together so that I can moveHelp me chew my foodOpen and close my eyelidsPump my bloodAllow me to run and playHelp me to smile!
5 It takes more muscles to Did you know?????It takes more muscles tofrownthan tosmile?
6 What are muscles made of? Stretchy, elastic cells and fibersWhat else is stretchy like a muscle?
7 Why do I need tendons? Try This... Tendons attach my muscles to my bone helping my body move.Feel your tendon right above your heel in the back of your leg.This is the thickest tendon in your body.Try This...
8 One way to keep my muscles strong… Eat foods from the meat group every day. They are high in protein which helps to build strong muscles.Name some foods that are high in protein.
9 Another way to keep strong muscles… Exercise every day.What are some things you can do every day to help keep your muscular system healthy?
