ELC 1.1.3 p.1
Science and Health 4 Textbook pp. 35-37
TM pp. 22-23

A. Science Idea:
The skull protects the brain, the backbone shields the spinal cord and the
ribcage protects the lungs and heart from the external injuries.
B. Science Processes:
Observing, Inferring
C. Value Focus:
Proper care of bones
D. Materials:
Picture of skeletal system, poster of skull, ribcage and picture of heart,
lungs, brain, and spinal cord

E. Background Information:
There are different delicate organs inside your body. These organs need
protection. There are bones that protect these organs, namely the skull, ribs,
and backbone.
The skull protects the brain.
The backbone protects the spinal cord.
