Science B28: The Animal Machine


Award-winning video and lesson investigations for young children on the topic of muscles and movement

Product Description

Video and lesson investigations on the topic of muscles and movement. Key concepts include:

  • Most animals drive themselves along with powerful hind legs. Different animals use their legs in different ways.
  • Force from the muscle power is needed to make animals move. This force is transmitted to the ground by an animal’s legs.
  • The animal pushes, then they walk or run.
  • The force of the animal pushing on the ground is met by the opposing force of the ground pushing back.
  • Animals’ skeletons and muscles work just like our own human skeletons and muscles, although the way in which the skeleton structure is arranged has evolved in a way that suits each animal’s lie style and the environment in which it lives.
