Some nice games for older students. Beware of advertising though.

Rio Harvey's curator insight, April 8, 2014 7:09 AM

Use this activity to learn the basic human anatomy. There are different activities including Poke-a-muscle and muscle crosswords to help you learn the different muscle groups. Once you have done these activities I want you to answer the following questions:

1. What role does the muscular system play in Health and Physical Education?

2. What are the major muscle groups used in Rugby League?
