All week we have learning about ways to take care of our bodies. Earlier in the week we read a book about our heart and learned that our heart is a muscle about the size of our fist. We discussed activities that increase our heart rate and talked about the importance of exercise. We even got to look at a model of a real heart.
On Thursday we watched a short video about the Food Pyramid and read a book about eating healthy food. We learned about foods that give our body energy and help us grow to be strong and about foods that we like but aren’t good for us.
During center time we got to make our own shopping list with a food from each group that we like to eat. Hopefully mom and dad will let us take our list to the store the next time they do the grocery shopping.
On Friday we read a book from the Cat in the Hat library called Oh the Things You Can do that Are Good For You. In the story the Cat in the Hat explains the basics of healthy living, from eating right and getting enough exercise and sleep, to having a positive body image!
