Our Amazing Body Unit

During the month of April, we are going to be studying all about the human body.  We will be focusing on the various parts of our body, their jobs and how to keep our bodies healthy.  The first step was finding out all of our "prior knowledge". We created a diagram of a human body showing what we thought was inside our body.  After that, we began learning about our first and maybe most important organ...our heart. We learned that the heart pumps blood and that it is a muscle and we need to exercise it. We used toilet paper tubes to listen to each other's hearts at rest and after we had run for 1 minute.

listening to our friend's hearts

We will be creating an anatomy apron showing our internal organs.
How we think the inside of our bodies look
