THE HUMAN BODY

The month of April is full of fun and entertaining activities!

We will learn about the human body. Our body is the most fascinating and fantastic machine in existence. We will travel inside our body to look at how we function. We will learn that our body is made up of a head, neck, torso, two arms, and two legs. The body is made to stand upright, walk on two feet and use the arms to carry and lift. We will learn the names and functions of various organs such us our heart, brain, lungs, kidneys, etc…

We will see that each of the organisms in our body has certain tasks assigned to it. The human body systems work closely with each other in order to maintain a healthy balance.

This month, we will learn how to take care of our body. Daily routines such as hand washing, tooth brushing,  and exercising help children along the road to a healthy lifestyle.

We will finish our study of the human body by reviewing our five senses. The senses are your child‘s first tools used for learning about the world. Our five senses are sight, smell, taste, touch, and hearing. We will do different  experiments to stimulate each sense.

RHYME OF THE MONTH

My body is working
Day and night.
Working, working, all the time.

My body is working
Day and night,
All my organs keep my just right.

My brain controls everything,
Everything my body does.
My lungs are breathing in the air
Putting oxygen in my blood.

My heart is pumping blood
All around
My stomach’s digesting
The food I’ve swallowed down.

My body is working
Day and night.
Working, working, all the time.

My body is working
Day and night,
All my organs keep my just right..

My two intestines keep digesting
One is small and one is large.
My liver cleans blood and fights infection,
So many functions it’s in charge.

Two kidneys clean my blood
Of harmful waste.
So many organs working
Keep me great!

My body is working
Day and night.
Working, working, all the time.

My body is working
Day and night,
All my organs keep my just right.

That’s right!

VALUE OF THE MONTH

PERSEVERANCE

Perseverance is being committed in your heart and persistent in your effort. You commit to your goals and overcome obstacles, no matter how long it takes. When the going gets rough and you figure out a way to hang in there and achieve your goals, you are showing perseverance.
