Explores the major characteristics of the skeletal and muscular systems. Discusses the number of bones in the human body, describes their different shapes and sizes, and illustrates how bones need muscles to move. Talks about different kinds of joints, and gives examples of how we use joints everyday.
The sea is full of incredible creatures. Some have backbones, while others have no bones. Some are animals that look like plants, and others are animals that have no brains. Students will explore the world under the see and learn about marine life. Based on the children's book by Bob Barner.
With a rhyming text and paper collage illustrations, author-artist Bob Barner brings dinosaurs back to life and offers fun dinosaur facts. Based on the children's book.
Athletes demonstrate their flexibility in this look at our ingeniously designed muscular-skeletal system. Discusses muscle and bone interaction, their structure, purpose, and function. Comments on technological studies on motion.
In the dark recesses of a warehouse, a drunken game of cards explodes into a murder. Now the night watchman lays dead. The only witnesses are a housefly or perhaps a cockroach that might be skittering by. That stylized tribute to our seemingly endless appetite for TV programs about forensic science sets the stage for an examination of how, in the real world of police investigations, nature is being enlisted in the war on crime. Sifts through the mayhem, murder, and science that make up the world of forensic investigation with the help of Dr. Jennifer Gardy, of British Columbia's Centre for Disease Control (CDC).

Bones are important to everyday tasks and movements. Students learn the functions of the following bones:spine, rib cage, tibia, femur, and skull. Part of the “Everyday Science for Preschoolers” series.
The Magic School Bus is an award winning animated children’s television series based on the book series of the same title by Joanna Cole and Bruce Degen. It is notable for its use of celebrity talent and being both highly entertaining and educational. Ms. Frizzle takes the class with her when she brings the Magic School Bus to the body shop for repairs. While there, Ralphie wants to use extra parts at the shop to make a robot. Ms. Frizzle then teaches the class how bones, muscles and joints all work together to help us move.
Begins with rock concert footage interspersed with interviews with well-known
Ethiopia's Rift Valley seems a barren landscape, but it hides untold archaeological riches. Dig in with Wild Chronicles and National Geographic researcher Zeray Alemseged and unearth a three-million-year-old baby. This historic discovery of tiny bones may shed new light on man's ancestry. Segment of video from Wild Chronicles Series.
Uses the fascinating setting of a circus to provide the analogy for growth. A magician creating the illusion of multiplying balls introduces microphotography, showing how cells divide and multiply. Shows how bones are continually being built and destroyed and, in a spectacular sequence of time-lapse photography, actually captures a tooth growing-from the moment it first appears out of the gum until it falls out.
At the Body Farm, the dead speak. Follows the world's first open-air crime lab with founder Bill Bass, of The University of Tennessee, for a close-up look at how cadavers decay. As proxies for murder victims, these decomposing bodies are studied in the name of science and the cause of justice. Talks about the factors and biological markers that help pinpoint time since death, including wind and weather, insects and carnivores, fire damage, soft tissue leachate, mold, and bacteria. Presents three homicide cases that hinged on data and expertise gained at the Farm, and shows Ph.D. students using forensic science and body processing. Shows human bodies in a variety of decomposition stages.
Scientists locate dinosaur fossils in Mongolia's Gobi Desert. As they excavate the bones, a story of prehistoric life in the region emerges. A segment of video from Wild Chronicles Series.
A woman with osteoporosis shares her experience, how she copes, and steps she's taken to prevent further bone loss. Physicians explain the disease, the risks and statistics, and the importance of calcium, exercise, and vitamin D earlier in life. Demonstrates a bone density test.
How do braces make teeth straight? They actually just copy the process that the rest of bones naturally undergo. Part of the "Science Out Loud" series.
National Geographic Explorer Paul Sereno and his team are looking for the complete skeleton of Nigersaurus. They traveled to the Niger hoping to find enough bones to construct a complete replica of the dinosaur from the ground up. They begin their search in the dinosaur graveyard of the Sahara Desert. Segment of video from Wild Chronicles Series.
Storyteller Heather Forest uses song, pantomime, games, and discussion to introduce young students to the human body. Talks about key body parts and how they move; how the heart, lungs, and brain keep the body running; how the bones, joints, and muscles hold the body up and help it move; and how our senses help us enjoy the world. Introduces principles of healthy eating, daily exercise, and adequate rest.
National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence Paul Sereno is usually digging up dinosaur bones. But Sereno was walking through the Sahara in northern Niger when he found a nearly 10,000-year-old human skull. This discovery lead Sereno to imagine the green Sahara that was their home. Segment of video from Wild Chronicles Series.
Lucy was a hominid that lived 3.2 million years ago, and her anatomy provides surprising insights into human ancestors. A member of the species Australopithecus afarensis, Lucy illuminates the human evolution timeline. Students learn about this world-famous fossil and the evidence of bipedalism.
