This week’s field trip was hosted by one of our families, with stations set up to explore human anatomy. The kids learned about the composition of blood with a large-scale model using ping pong balls, marbles and small yellow balls representing white and red blood cells, and platelets. They got to take their pulse, and learn the differences between different heart rates (resting, normal, and with exercise), and made models of the hand and spine. They also got to make (and eat!) a ton of body-themed snacks!
