  2. When a arm straightens out, does the bicep relax because when an arm bends the triceps relaxes then they reverse?

  3. In the “Websites” section the website: •KidsHealth: Your Muscles talks about the three types of muscles and what the contracting and relaxing of them causes. The •Science Bob: Muscular System website does a good job explaining how muscles work together to move body parts.

  4. Sharon – the answer to the 3 types of muscles is also in the Biolgoy4Kids page – click on that link under “Websites” and you will see it.

  5. The link on the page: Biology4Kids: Muscular System – click on that one, the second paragraph tells you the purpose of the muscular system.
