Grades 4-6: The Human Body

Learning about health isn't just about medical diseases and conditions. It's about understanding yourself, your friends and family, and the world around you.

I played the Pumpkin o meter. It was really informative. It taught that candy could add calories to out diets and if you burn it down, you'll gain weight. I got many more information but I think the paragraph would be too big.

P.S. Daniel Gave the pumpkin 100000 calories... boy that punkin is gunna need to lose weight....

HI Mrs.Bromley,

Today when I was at the site that you put on your post I learned about cells.

I learned that are lot's of diffrent cells to keep us form getting sick. But we also need to keep ourself clean on the outside.
I also learned that if one of the virus invade a cell on of the protecter in our body just kills the one cell, beacuse we have trillions of cells in our body and our body always creats more cells.

And there are 5 steps to winning a battle to viruses. And most of all we need those protecteors in our body so they can keep us healthy.

I thought the video that I saw was really interesting.

Astudent,
Janet

Dear Ms. Bromley,

The immune system is something in your body that provents viruses to get you sick.

I was watching a vedio about the immune system.I learned that in your immunes system, when ever there is a virus or anything bad in your system, there are cells that protect your self from being sick. There are also memorie cells that remember the virus that came into your body and if it comes again next time, your body will know how to fit the virus.

I also leared that without your immune system, you would get sick all the tome and there would be no hepl in your body.

Dear Mrs.Bromley,

I learned these things about health:1)Every food you have has calories, except water. 2)If you have too much candy, you have to excercise or else the calories turn into fat. 3)I learned that calories are the energy that you use to move, play, or excercise. Those are the 3 important things that I learned about health today.

L.O.L,

Amanda W.

We learned that the heart pumpes blood out of the left mitral valve. And goes in from the right side. The heart is divided into 4 parts:(on the top right side)pulmonary valve, (and on the bottom right side)tircuspid valve, (and on the left side)the aortic valve and last but not least the mitral valve.

dear all,

The website kids heath is a website that teaches about you and you growing up. while i was surfing this website I learned a few important things. the thing that i learned and thought was important was a page called "kids talk" it tells you about where some expressions come from. did you know that the expression "sick as a dog" comes from the fact that dogs eat or chew most of the stuff that is in there path so they get sick a lot.

Did you know, that you nails grow 2.5 mm each month? Your nails have 3 different parts; your cuticle, nail root and your lunla. The pink color of your nails come from the blood vessles under yournail bed.

i learned that hair gets it clor from melanin and that there are cells in your spleen. ears also help you balance and skin grows out of follicle.

Chelsea said...

Hey Miss Bromley it's Chelsea here's what I thought about this website. The Brain is like the boss of your body. It controls everything. Without the brain you would be spaghetti. The nervous system is called the nervous system because their are billions of nervous cells. So that why they call it the Nervous System. The thalamus is part of the brain. It carries messages from your sencery organs to your tongue,nose, ears etc. The brain stem connects the brain to the spinal cord. The cerebelem keeps you balanced. So far that's all I know. Talk to you tomorrow. Fondly Chelsea

Adrian Ensan said...

I learned that your nails are made of keratin and there are around 10 million receptors in your nose. Did you know that the iris is the most colourful part of the eye and your ears help you balance. And that's all the info you get.

This website also have games, quizzes and movies that you can go to. It is very fun when you do the quiz about the human body. And the games is not only fun but it is also good for knowing what you should eat and what should you not eat. I wish there are more websites like this that can show us more about the human body.
This is an excellent website for our school.
