Our Bodies

The Grasshoppers looked at their bodies. 

First they drew around Jonah to get the shape of a body. 

Next they talked about where different body parts might go on the drawing. 

They selected cut out body parts and added them to the body. 

Once they had done outside body parts they talked about inside body parts. 

The children talked about where organs like their hearts might go. 

The children put there hands on their hearts and felt for pulsing. 

They talked about how their hearts beat faster when they do physical activity. 

The children practised running on the spot and then felt the difference in their hearts. 

They also felt their pulses and tapped out the rhythm they felt.
