We actually managed to read the entire muscles chapter in our anatomy book in 1 week.
You know what the problem is? I didn’t have the supplies for a single experiment, not a one of the 4 supplies. So, that will all happen this week, instead I’ll share a funny story about this chapter.
As I was reading the chapter, I got to the portion that talked about the biggest muscle in their body: the gluteus maximus.
I tried to give them hints to get them thinking about what it could be, and they just stared at me. Then I got more specific, and they still were not getting it, “your hips?” They just kept giving me confused stares.
So I called them over to look at the picture, and suddenly the lights went on. “You mean my bottom is a muscle?” This was mind-blowing for them. It was a great discussion after that, but it doesn’t make for a great blog post.
Since I still have to do hands on muscle activities, what would you recommend?
Let’s see what others did this week:
Each week I’m spotlighting a few posts that were shared previously. Many posts get linked up later in the week and they don’t always get as many clicks as they deserve, so I’m trying to spotlight a few every week.
I love this post shared by Navigating with Joy because she tried so many different ways to make a balloon hovercraft. I don’t know if I’d be that persistent.
Gift of Curiosity shared about farm animals, it’s a great early elementary/preschool unit. I’d also point out she has a giveaway she mentions that ENDS TODAY!
Afterschooling for Smartypants shared a great child led experiment. What is the mystery powder?

Now link up your SCIENCE posts for the week, and then visit some of the other posts linked up and say hi. I’m going to be pinning, commenting, FBing or tweeting all of the posts linked up as the week goes by.
