Why Do We Need Our Skeleton? micro-lesson

Do you struggle with balancing your kids’ screen time with their education? Say hello to 1Question, the app that solves this problem with a fun twist! Our app lets your child earn screen time minutes in their favourite apps by watching educational videos and correctly answering quiz questions. And the best part? You get to decide which apps to lock behind learning using 1Question. 

Learning time​

Kids learn by watching short, engaging video lessons.

Do you run and jump and play each day? How does your body move and how does your body stay upright? Your body's able to do all of these things because of your skeleton. We each have a skeleton that's made-up of bones joined together. It's our body's framework. Our muscles are attached to our bones and that's what helps us be able to move. Our skeleton also has an important job of protecting our organs. Our skull protects our brain, and our ribs protect our heart and our lungs. This means that if you were to have a hard impact or an injury, your organs would stay safe. Our skeleton also helps to produce important minerals and blood cells. These do things like fight off infection and get oxygen to your organs. Our minerals are stored in our bones and are released when our body needs it. So next time you're out running and jumping and playing, say a big thank you to your bones and your skeleton for helping you to move, keeping your organs safe, and keeping your body healthy.
