LOOK AT YOUR OWN HAND!

You have:
 
  2 hands  - each of which has:
  5 fingers -  each of which has: 
  3 parts separated by 2 knuckles.

Is this a coincidence?   Or not? 

Can you think of any other parts of the anatomy that reflect Fibonacci numbers?   Post your  notes on the Fibonacci Blog.   Then respond to at least three (3) fellow classmates' postings, using Grade 4 ELA standards.
