Can someone check these lines for iambic pentameter (10 syllables)?
The anatomy room is where we start
Skeletons with each and every part
They look around the room at all of us
But alas there is just no need to fuss
I’m learning everything I must
For in my future career I can trust
Gus the turtle keep our hopes high above
I’m thankful for learning the things I love
My book is the key for all to come soon
Maybe my mess might turn to look like the moon

Only "They look around the room at all of us" is iambic pentameter

Not all the lines have ten syllables if that is what you mean, but this is not iambic pentameter anyway since each foot (iamb) needs an unstressed then a stressed syllable. Try reading your piece through and see how this is just not happening.
