A Lesson in Anatomy for Lake Country Academy 3rd Graders
third graders at Lake Country Academy had special visitors to help them
prepare for a test on the skeletal system. Dr. Andersen and Dr.
Peterson, parents of children at Lake Country Academy, took their time
to show special power point presentations on the skeletal system and
other interesting topics. Dr. Andersen, a chiropractor, showed a
fascinating power point, whereby the program would peel away layers of
skin and muscle to reveal the bones. He also showed the students how
calcium supports bone health and how phosphorus can harm bones by
replacing calcium. Dr. Peterson, a radiologist, shared the history of
specialization of various medical fields. He also had a wonderful
power point presentation prepared that talked about invertebrates and
vertebrates, which tied in with the study of animal classification.
The students learned about hydrostatic skeletons as well. A model of a
skeleton and samples of bone replacement hardware were brought in along
with samples of real bones from an ear.
children learned much about this aspect of anatomy that hopefully will
encourage them to study further the amazing human body.
is a great example of how working parents use their knowledge to enrich
the education experience of children at Lake Country Academy. For more
