Ms. Holcomb & Mrs. Childress
After discussing our feelings and love, we made the connection to our physical bodies. We began the next part of our study by asking the question, Does the heart in our body look the same or different than a Valentines heart?
Friends who thought it would look the same: 7
During our time in the science lab Mrs. Wesson reinforced our learning of how the heart works and showed the girls in a hands on way how the blood inside our body circulates through the body.
"It holds onto the oxygen and takes it allllll over our body and then comes back!"
Another visit to the lab, the girls explored how to keep our heart healthy. The girls learned that they can eat the right foods to keep our heart healthy and strong.
"Bread apples and fish and eggs and chicken are good for your heart."
