Moving and growing

We have been learning about different types of skeletons in school.

Can you remember the 3 main functions of your skeleton?
What different kinds of skeletons do different animals have?

An activity in which children aged 8-9 can watch how different animals move and then try to label parts of their skeletons.

    The three main functions of the skeleton are:
    1)Movement, you wouldn’t be able to move a single milimetre without bones.
    2)Protection, your bones protect all your organs.
    3)Support, bones also help you to stand up other wise you will be like a jelly fish!

    The Great White Shark or sometimes called the “Great White” scientific name is Carcharodon carcharias. There are over 600 species of Sharks and rays with the GWS (Great White Shark) belonging to a group of fast-swimming sharks called mackerel sharks GWS are usually solitary animals but have been seen in pairs and even occasionally in groups up to 7 or 8

    GWS are fish, but unlike most fish do not have bones but rather a “cartilaginous skeleton” 2 other differences are their scales which are not smooth and oily like most fish but very rough like glasspaper, and their gills (gill slits) which are not covered like most fish but are open.

    The GWS is found in temperate (mild) waters fairly close to the shoreline They are found in most parts of the world including North & South America, Africa, Japan, China, Russia, New Zealand, and of course Australia.
