My Students

Like many students around the world, our students are participating in distant learning for the first time and are adjusting on the fly. They have technology to watch and log on to videos and websites to access their work and complete it at home.

Providing videos, pictures, tutorials, and live streams of learning

opportunities is the most powerful tool at this time so having a variety of equipment and materials to aide that is important. The students log in daily and complete learning from home with the help of the above tools.

My Project

These muscle puzzles will aide in teaching the students about the muscle system of the human body. We have the matching bone puzzles and the students enjoy learning about them and testing their knowledge against other groups and me. The muscle puzzles/models are large enough to use in our video class and students to visualize easily.

Learning about the muscle system empowers the students to continue to learn about exercise and healthy activity.

The more knowledge they get about their bodies the more interest they show in doing their part to live a healthy life style.
