The Human Body Unit

Leave a comment


After much voting, the students have decided that our next unit of study should be about the human body. For the morning message, we asked the students what they would like to learn about the body and their responses were quite profound.

A.J. – What is the color in your eyes?

O.A. – How does the heart work?

S.M. – How does your brain make you talk?

A.H. – How do you get hair?

S.C. – When do babies come out of your belly?

S.B. – Why do ears hurt sometimes?

E.S. – What is blood for?

T.O. – Why are atoms in people’s bodies?

O.M. – Where is the heart?

H.P. – What does the esophagus do?

D.K. – What is the heart for?

J.W. – What does the heart do?

J.J. – How does the heart beat?

With so many thoughtful questions, we were provided with a multitude of subtopics to explore. The students seemed to be most interested in the heart, which was a great place to start. So far, the students have listened to their hearts using stethoscopes, learned that the heart pumps blood to the rest of our bodies, and looked into what hearts truly look like. We can’t wait to find out what we’ll learn next!
