Kids Web Pages on Bones, Joints, Muscles, and Skin
Format: Web Site
Institute: National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS)
Childhood and teen years are a prime time to learn habits that can help kids keep their bones, joints, muscles, and skin healthy for years to come.
The new NIAMS Kids Pages feature four fact sheets on the importance of healthy bones, joints, muscles, and skin. The pages are targeted to middle-school-age children (11–13 years) and include pop-up definitions of terms, interactive quizzes, and links to other resources.
