This book looks at the muscles, bones and joints that make up the musculo-skeletal system. It shows how this system supports and protects the human body and allows it to move around. It examines the composition and workings of bones, muscles and tendons and considers the problems that can occur when the musculo-skeletal system is subjected to too much or too little activity.
The clear and lively text explains these fascinating systems. It also highlights the workings of the human body contrasted with the bodies of animals.There are case studies about, for example, what happens to your bones as you age. There are also features on health and medicine, considering problems that can occur with the muscles and skeleton and what we can do to keep them healthy. Amazing colour photographs combine with original artwork to show the different body parts in detail.
All these titles are fascinating, insightful and informative. The series is an excellent resource for more able key stage 2 scientists, though intended for KS3. Each title develops its subject matter through straightforward text and clearly detailed illustrations and photographs. Together with a comprehensive contents, index and well chosen web links, this allows readers to engage with the text independently. ( TES)Book Description:
