Learning time​

Kids learn by watching short, engaging video lessons.

You’ve probably heard of muscles, ligaments, and bone but did you know they all work together in order to help your body move? Our bones consist in our skeleton. They help our body to stay upright, and they give our body shape. Our muscles work with our bones. In fact, there are three types of muscles. Skeletal muscle is a cord-like tissue that attaches to our bones. It helps hold our skeleton together, gives our body shape, and helps us move by bending and constricting. Ligaments are elastic tissue where two bones meet, a joint. Ligaments help our joints to stay together and to be supported. Without bones, muscles, and ligaments working together, we wouldn't be able to move, jump, run, and play.
