Targeted Lessons (NC Essential Standards):


Students know that the muscles and the skeleton provide a structural framework that protects and supports the mobility of the human body. Students know that the skeletal system is made of bone. Bone is a hard material that provides support and protection to the body’s soft tissues. Students know that muscles are formed from tissues that contract and relax, producing motion. Muscles are attached to bones and initiate and regulate movement. Muscles are also found in internal organs that are responsible for essential life processes (heart, stomach, intestines).


Students know that the skin is the largest organ of the human body, that it covers and protects the human body from external conditions and forces. Students know that the skin contains nerve receptors that provide information about external conditions.
