Some Malletts Bay School Ospreys are hard at work learning about the human body.

In Ashley Laurent’s third-grade class (you can read her classroom blog here!), the students have already studied a number of body systems through a variety of activities, including reading articles, collecting data, and making projects. For example, the students designed and played games to learn about such topics as asthma, pneumonia, and the negative effects of smoking.

In addition to the cardiovascular, circulatory, digestive, and respiratory systems, the science unit will also include the study of the muscular and skeletal systems as well as a study of heredity.
