Body of Evidence: The Skeletal System
Without bones you would be a lump of fleshy organs. Without cartilage you would have no nose, no fingernails, and folding your arm or straightening your leg would be extremely painful.

Cartilage and bone are examples of connective tissue that are widespread and very important in our bodies. Cartilage requires no blood supply and actually repels blood vessels. This, plus its rubbery and slippery qualities, makes cartilage well-suited for joints.

Bone serves many important functions such as to support our body, protect delicate organs, make blood cells, and maintain critical calcium levels. Under the microscope, bone is one of the body’s most beautifully constructed organs. The exquisite design of osteons makes compact bone, pound for pound, as strong as cast iron. Most amazing is the fact that the bones of the adult skeleton are highly dynamic structures that constantly change shape to best meet the loads that are placed on them.

Part 1: 39 minutes. Part 2: 36 minutes

Body of Evidence Review by The Traveling Praters January 10, 2012
Reviewer: Tonya from Timberdoodle's Blogger Review Team  
My 16 year old enjoyed Biology and the few dissections that we did so much last year that he asked specifically to learn more about the Human Body and Anatomy as part of his studies this year. For my visual/audio learner, the Body of Evidence DVD’s couldn’t fit more perfectly.

The majorityof the program shows Dr. Menton speaking at a table with two students as he refers to his computer screen or classroom skeleton. The material is presented in easy to understand language and a laid back style that includes fascinating facts about the human body that I never knew.

I knew my 16 year old would enjoy the lectures but surprisingly, so did my 15 year old that bores very easily. This is what she had to say when I asked her what she thought ….
“I’m not at all interested in anatomy and the skeletal system so at first I didn’t really pay too much attention because I expected it to be really boring. When I began to listen, I was surprised to find out that the DVD was actually interesting. I really learned a lot and I’m looking forward to watching some of the other DVD’s in the series.”

If you’re looking for DVD’s to supplement your anatomy study or simply want to offer your children an overview without a full blown course, the Body of Evidence DVD Curriculum - Set of 8 DVDS are a great way to do just that!
