human body is trulyamazing. It has many different
organs, and all these organs
must work together. What’s even more amazing is that they are working
24 hours a day. We can say that the body is like a super computer.
The braincontrols all of the organs
in the human body to work properly. Ok, now we know
that our organs are very important. But we must not forget about our muscles, too. Without them,
there would be no movement. Without muscles,
forget about jumping or running. You can’t even walk if you don’t
have muscles in your body!
Did you know that there’s a special muscle that we use all the time?
It is the only muscle in your body that is attached at only one end.
Can you guess which muscle that is? Here’s a hint. You use it to taste food!
Aha! Yes, it’s the tongue! The tongue is a special
muscle that helps you taste your food. Actually, the tongue allows us to chew, swallow and even speak! The
appearance of the tongue
can also reveal how healthy you are.
Now you know something your friends might not. Ask them if they know
which muscle in the body is attached at only one end! Yes, it’s time
to show off your new knowledge!
