      Learning about anatomy the fun way

      A few Heartland kids learned that they have more than just a funny bone.

      Kids ages 2-12 went to the Adair County Library Tuesday morning to learn about awesome anatomy.

      Eric Snider D.O., Associate Professor at A.T. Still University, was the speaker. He brought his skeleton friend named Bob Bones to show kids the different bones a human has.

      He also taught the kids about muscles and how they help move the bones.

      "I'm hoping they'll be excited about anatomy and maybe what to lean more about it. I bet there is one or two students here that'll want to grow up to be a physician. I'll be more happy if they grow up to be an osteopathic physician," Snider said.

      Snider had the kids be active by sitting, standing and moving around to show the kids what the bones and muscles do to make us move.

      There were also sensory tables so the kids could see the bones up close.

      Kids even had the chance to make their own dancing skeletons at craft stations.
