Our latest foray into the realm of research takes us on a journey into ourselves. We noticed lots of discussions surrounding lungs, breathing and hearts recently and decided to find out what our children already know about their miraculous machines.

“What do you know about the human body?”

  • Your eyelashes can blink. -CS
  • Heart pumps the blood.- AH
  • Lungs help you breath.- RF
  • Sometimes blood comes out of your body.-MH
  • Blood can come out of your finger.-KV
  • Your brain helps you think.-AG
  • Sometimes when you get hurt blood comes out and sometimes blood stays in.-KH
  • The heart beats.-NP
  • You can think with your brain.-LZ
  • The human body has legs and bones.-WS
  • Your food goes in the human body.-SS
  • Your trachea is made of rings and your esophagus pumps food into your belly in 3 seconds.-ZW
  • Blood goes through your veins and drops off oxygen, but sometimes it’s not working and you have to go to the doctor’s.-LW
