1. How many bones did your model need? How many muscles did it need?
2. How were your pretend muscles similar and different to real muscles?
3. What would happen if the ligaments of the models were overstretched or torn? How would it affect the way the models could operate?
4. Explain what ligaments, tendons, and cartilage are.
5. What made this activity fun?
6. What made this activity challenging?
1. Our model needed three bones and two muscles.
2. Our muscles were similar because biceps were on top and triceps were on the bottom. They are different because they are balloons and they don't work exactly as peoples would.
3. If it was overstretched or torn it wouldn't be able to operate correctly because nothing would be in place.
4. Ligaments are what keeps the bones in place so they won't get hipper extended. Tendons are are what keeps the biceps and triceps in place so they won't move. Cartilage is what is in between the bones so that if they rub it won't hurt (it is like cushion for the bones).
5. It was very fun experimenting and learning more about all the bones and joints and other stuff about the elbow and muscles.
6. If you failed once you would have to keep on trying and doing it over and over and one little mistake would make you even think harder and do more than you thought you would have to.
