Today is a wonderful day because it is Friday! Our lesson on muscles went very well today. It was mostly a catch up day where students could finish work from previous science lessons. We worked on our flip books and added in a section about muscles. I also created a class set of mini arm dioramas that helps show that our muscles pull not push. It is a misconception that our muscles push and pull, but in fact they only pull. I had originally wanted my students to create these themselves, however after getting to know my class I realized that this would prove to be rather difficult. So I decided to make them myself, which took a rather long time for such a short demonstration.
Overall it has been a good day,
