The chicken wing connection

Coinciding with the current Science unit, the body, on Tuesday we dissected chicken wings to discover bones, muscles, joints, tendons and ligaments in a fun way. It also gave us the opportunity to enjoy chicken wings from a new perspective although some of my toughest sixth-graders had preferred to not know them from this new angle 😀

It was very exciting to see how the muscles worked together to bend the forearm, how the biceps contracted when the triceps relaxed or how the tendons helped the muscles to move and stretch.

Like last year, the experience was a success. And we had a lot of fun!

So say we all!!
