Hospital Month – Week 4
Da-dum, Da-dum, Da-dum! That is how our heart beats. We learned that our heart is a muscle that pumps blood through veins and arteries to our whole body. Our heart is always working. It is important to keep our heart healthy by exercising and eating lots of fruits and vegetables. We got to look at and even tough the heart from a cow. It felt cold and soft.
We also learned about our lungs. When we breathe, the air fills our lungs, like when you blow air into a balloon. When we blow out, the air has carbon dioxide which helps the plants to grow. Isn’t God’s creation amazing?
We learned about how our food digests after we eat it. It is important to eat good foods. On Wednesday, we categorized our healthy snack to see how many food groups it fit into. Some of us had grains, fruits, vegetables, or protein. We took our picture with “Chef Pierre!”
On Thursday, Southfield Firefighters Kenny and Scott came to visit us. They told us what to do if their is an emergency. We all know the number to call, which is 9-1-1. If there is ever a fire, we know how to drop to the floor, crawl to the door, and meet our family outside. It was fun to go outside to see the equipment in their fire truck and to hear the loud siren. They even gave us Junior fire hats that we got to take home.
When our First Grade Buddies came, we got to read to them this week. We had practiced reading two science body books so that we could share what we have been learning with our first grade friends.
