“Dem Bones” Discussed by Terry Martin

How many bones are there in an adult skeleton?
What bones are counted and not counted?
What bone is the last to mature and at what age?
How can we tell if the skeleton is a male or female?
What bones are most likely to fracture and how?

Get answers to these and other questions in a presentation about “Dem Bones” on Monday, Oct. 3 at Farm Bureau.

Terry Martin, former biology instructor, will utilize numerous images of human skeletons and various individual bones in his informative and entertaining program for Farm Bureau Prime Timers.

Terry attended North Central College in Naperville after graduation from Batavia High School. He received his degrees from Northern Illinois University including a Bachelor of Science in Education in 1965 and a Master of Science in 1966.
