how do bones grow.Most kids spend time when they're little dreaming about what life will be like when they grow bigger. But have you ever WONDERed exactly what happens inside your body to make you grow? Specifically, have you ever thought about how your bones grow?
How Many Bones Are In Your Body. Anyway, we were WONDERing about bones the other day and wanted to know how many we had. We tried to count them, but then we realized they're all under our skin! It would be much easier if we had see-through skin or a best friend who was just a skeleton.
Do you have any idea how many bones you have? Did you realize that the number of bones you have changes from when you're a baby to when you're grown up? It's true!
Babies start out with over 300 bones. Since babies have a lot of growing to do, some of the bones they'll have as adults start out in multiple pieces. Over time, these bones grow together to form one larger bone. By the time you're an adult, you'll have exactly 206 bones. Over half of those bones can be found in your hands and feet! Your bones can be divided into two skeletal systems.
wow johny that is a lot
Thanks Alot You To
Do You Ever Play Possum?There are over 60 different species of opossums, the most common of which is the Virginia opossum (also known as the common opossum). These unique animals can claim to be the only marsupial found in the United States and Canada. Opossums live practically anywhere there's a source of water, food and suitable shelter, so they can be found in the woods, on farms, in the suburbs and even urban, inner-city areas.
The opossum's pouch, a trait it shares with all marsupials, comes in handy for mother opossums. When giving birth to as many as 20 babies at a time — most of which are as tiny as bees — the babies crawl into their mother's pouch, where they will grow and develop until they're able to survive on their own.Opossums are great climbers and spend a lot of their time in trees. Some people think opossums hang upside down by their tails, but this is mostly a myth. Their tails do help them grip limbs when they climb, but their sharp claws and opposable thumbs are usually what they use to navigate their way through the tree tops.
Despite spending a lot of time in trees, their scavenging habits often take opossums into the paths of numerous predators, including bobcats, foxes, cats, and dogs. Even though they have the most teeth of any North American land mammal (50!), opossums will usually choose to flop on their sides and play dead to fool predators rather than fight.
That's a lot of writing Matthew! Good Job! :)
I learned about why people put trains under Christmas trees. People have been putting trains under Christmas trees for 100 years. It started near the 1900's
Hello Mrs.M! My wonder of the day is Why Are Emergency Lights Red and Blue? I found out that it helps people who are color blind because people that are color blind to red often have no problem seeing the color blue while people that are color blind to blue often have no problem seeing the color red. I also learned that red lights are more visible during the day while blue lights are more visible during nightime. One last thing I learned is that the lights warn people about where the situation is. Well that's all for now. Bye!
