How do our Bodies Work When We Exercise?

Our new words are flexible, perspire, muscle, and strengthen. They are words for our Exercise Study. Help your child learn the words.

Flexible gymnast

Flexible – able to bend without breaking. Gymnasts need to be very flexible.

Perspiring boy

Perspire – sweaty. You might perspire when it is hot outside or if you exercise a lot.


Muscle – the soft pieces of flesh in animals and humans that make the bones move.

Strengthening muscles

Strengthen – make stronger. Doing exercises will strengthen your muscles.

Congratulations! You are helping your child grow their vocabulary!
