Breaking an arm, a leg, or some part of the body can be super scary. Not only does it hurt, but you may not know what’s going to happen next. We love this classic Sesame Street video segment from 1978 because it helps explain what to expect when something breaks. Watch Megan get a cast so that her Broken Wrist can heal.
