HUMAN SKELETAL SYSTEM


On Tuesday, October 7, Mrs. Hoffman’s First Grade Class had a visit from Karen Downing, a Radiographer from Orange Regional Medical Center and Marci Lamendola, a Clinical Instructor for SUNY Orange College Radiology Department and an X-Ray Technologist at St. Lukes Hospital. 

This special visit was part of their study of the Human Body Systems.
 
Students got a great overview of the Skeletal System.  Students viewed images of X-rays such as humerus, skull and chest on a view box.  They got to observe real human bones compared to images taken of bones. Students also explored a card board display of a machine called a "portable" that is used to take X-rays when patients can’t go to the radiology department.
