Our first graders are learning all about the human body and the digestive system. At the beginning of the school year, we worked on nutrition and what we need to stay healthy and strong. We have used our prior knowledge to learn what happens to our body once food enters our system.
Our culminating project had the kids put together the digestive system. They put on their vest as if they had taken an X-ray. They were able to identify the esophagus, lungs, liver, large and small intestine, and heart.
