The Human Body

Skeleton System

By Jessica

When taking part in any physical activity it is very important to warm-up before performing any activity. The warm-up session will consist of light exercise which increases circulation while stretching prepares the muscles for movements required during the activity. The warm-up will help prevent injuries by warming the muscle up preparing them for sudden movements that may be needed in any physical activity. In these photographs we see Jessica learning about about the body, organs and the skeleton system.
