Last week, we had an awesome time learning about the skeletal system! We are super excited about the muscular system this week, aren’t you? As with last week, we aren’t getting into the scientific names of the muscles, but are learning what they do for the body.

Kidney Filtration from How Stuff Works Health
In the nephron, approximately 20 percent of the blood gets filtered under pressure through the walls of the glomerular capillaries and Bowman’s capsule. The filtrate is composed of water, ions (sodium, potassium, chloride), glucose and small proteins (less than 30,000 daltons — a dalton is a unit of molecular weight). The rate of filtration is approximately 125 ml/min or 45 gallons (180 liters) each day. Considering that you have 7 to 8 liters of blood in your body, this means that your entire blood volume gets filtered approximately 20 to 25 times each day! Also, the amount of any substance that gets filtered is the product of the concentration of that substance in the blood and the rate of filtration. So the higher the concentration, the greater the amount filtered or the greater the filtration rate, the more substance gets filtered.

Reading – Why Do I Have Bones? from Peter Dublin
Why Do I Have Bones is a science skill associated with the Kindergarten-Grade 1 Life Science topic of the Human Body. Included are an e-Book and five interactive activities that focus on constructing a story, understanding, vocabulary, spelling, and sentence building. Each of the interactive activities provides elementary school students with a different way of acquiring this important reading skill.
All of these software activities are available in a browser. You must have Internet access to play them (you do not need a special application to open this file type as any browser will run it).
