PreK Students Give a Lesson on the Human Body
Oops, they did it again! Our young scientists/future physicians are still making amazing discoveries as part of the current PreKindergarten unit of inquiry, “I Wonder Why.” After spending the past month observing and analyzing the life cycle of butterflies, ladybugs and chickens, the students have now moved on to a study of the human body, complete with life-sized child cutouts.
Last week, the students expanded their study of human anatomy and physiology. So far, they have inquired into the following systems: skeletal, digestive, muscular, cardiovascular and respiratory. Included in their findings? The human body has 206 bones (although we are born with 270). The heart pumps blood, while veins and arteries carry the blood through the body. And the brain tells you to move!
