Kindergarten learning about the body
Kindergarten has been learning about their bodies. The students have had the opportunity to study bone names, discuss the importance of bones and better understand what to eat and drink to keep our bones healthy.
Students used random pasta to make a skeleton and painted their skeletons to look like bones. They have also discussed what the muscles help our body to do. We learned that the heart is a muscle that pumps blood around our body. The kindergarten students learned that blood travels away from the heart in arteries and back to the heart in veins. Each student kept a weekly log of their exercise that was used to discuss how many different types of exercise there is and how important exercise is for our body. The students listened to many different stories about their body to help emphasis the importance of each body part.
