K Students Prepare for More Broken Arms!

Smackover Elementary School kindergarten students in Mrs. Jameson’s class also designed casts as the culminating project in their PLTW Human Body module.  In this module, students learned about bones, muscles, body organs, and more!

While we don’t want any student or employee to get hurt while at school, at least we know our kindergarten students are prepared in case of an emergency!


K Students Design Casts

As the final part of the PLTW Structure and Function: Human Body Module, Smackover Elementary School kindergarten students had to design a cast that met the following criteria:

  • Strong to hold the bone in place and keep the wrist from moving,
  • Light so that someone can lift their arm,
  • Comfortable so it does not hurt or bother the person wearing it, and
  • Water resistant so that it is not destroyed by a little bit of water.
