3C learning about muscles

3C have had lots of fun exploring how muscles move the body by contracting and relaxing.

Muscles which move bones act together in pairs. This means that as one muscle contracts, its partner relaxes. Then, as the partner muscle contracts the first muscle relaxes again. Contract - means becoming shorter. The muscle fibres slide together and stack up to make a fatter shape, a bit like when you shuffle a pack of cards together. Relaxing means the fibres slide apart and the muscle gets longer and thinner.
