Making Lessons Relevant at Northvail


The fourth graders at Northvail have been learning about various body systems and have just completed a study of the skeletal system.

In order to connect lessons to real life experiences, Dr. Paul Lewandowski, Chiropractic Physician of Boonton, visited Northvail and gave a presentation using anatomically correct plastic models of skeletal bones.

He discussed the origin of skeletal names as well as the shapes of the bones and how they correlate to different body functions.

The program ended with an overall discussion about how the students can keep their bodies healthy.
