When we were doing about the body our class made some posters about body systems. We all got into five groups and made posters about a part of the body of our choice. The subjects chosen were the tongue, the heart, the brain and the nervous system.
Here are a few facts from them-
- The average length of the human tongue from the back to the tip is 10 cm (4 inches).
- A nerve is a fibre that send impulses through the body.
- 100,000 miles of blood vessels are in your brain.
- Did you know your heart beats about 80 times a minute?
- The tongue is a muscular structure attached to the floor of the mouth.
- Nerve cells work by a mixture of chemical and of electrical action .
- Your brain is split up into two sides, the creative side and the logical side.
- The heart is made up of 4 chambers , the left atrium, the left ventrical, the right ventrical and the right atrium.
We made five posters and we had lots of fun making them.
One afternoon all the P6s got together for a Science workshop on Body systems. At the workshop we learnt lots more about the human body like things about bones and veins.
In the workshop we pretended that we were in a doctors surgery and this boy called Timothy kept on getting hurt. It was really funny and he would come in with things like broken bones and muddled organs and we learnt what doctors would do to help them. At one point we learned how big the large intestine was and we held a fake large intestine and put a carrot in and wrigged it to the end.
It was a fun way to learn!
