Buckeye Room Bulletin
Skeletal System- This week we looked at the skeletal system and if we didn’t have a skeleton we would be one messy blob on the ground (insert a flagellant sound). We learned the skull protects our brain, the rib cage protects our lungs, and the spine keeps us sitting and standing straight. We learned technical terms for our arms, leg and our digits which is a funny name called phalanges. We brought our life sized foam puzzle into our room. His name is Elvis because we learned about the pelvis and it was a cool rhyming name.
A Message From Mr. John (My Mission Statement):
Did you know?
Sometimes I think about weird things like how many paper clips are produced in a year. Really, I think of these things. Most paper clips in the United States are made domestically by a few firms that specialize in their manufacture. These manufacturers put out roughly 20 million pounds a year of paper clips. So, about 28 paperclips equal 1 ounce. I was too lazy too find out how many paperclips that are produced. Bragging rights to the people who figure this out!!!!!!
