In class, we have been learning about bones and muscles. The human body can do some amazing things.
The spine is very important. It is made of bones called vertebrae (VER-teh-bray). The bones are like a chain. Together they can flex and move in many directions.
To demonstrate just how flexible and movable the human body is, we present Stella. "I have been taking gymnastics for four years," said Stella. "At first, I learned a cartwheel. After many lessons, I can now do a flip, a backbend, roundoff back handspring, and the splits. I hope you enjoy my floor routine."
What are some ways you use your spine?
What are your hobbies?
