Muscular System

Go to the Brain Pop system on muscles.

Click here for The Bundles of Energy Muscular System website.

Back to our main Body home page.

The muscular system includes three types of muscles. They are smooth, which are found on the walls of internal organs, cardiac, which is found only in the heart, and skeletal muscles, which help strenthen the body and connect to bones.

I think that the muscular system compares well with a backhoe. The backhoe pulls back the shovel using metal cables, just like muscles contract pulling up the connected bone.
