This week in Kakano 4 we asked our tamariki what they knew about their bodies in order to challenge them to pursue their curiosity and investigate further.
Children were asked to work together to draw a life size outline of a child's body that we would use to record our thoughts about what we know about the human body.
I was amazed to hear their thoughts and ideas about the human body. It was great to see their excitement and enthusiasm begin to ignite as I recorded their responses onto one of our life sized bodies.
|"We have seven layers of skin," said Jake.|
"We have organs," said Zoe
"A heart," said Ethan
I wanted everyone to tune in just a little bit more by using magazines to search for images that show what a healthy person is to them.
|"Look Miss T! Water!|
|"What does a healthy person look like Zekaius?" asked Miss T.|
"Strong!" said Zekaius.
|"Look Miss T its a salad! It's healthy!|
|A healthy person pats a puppy.|
|Waireka had an image of a trophy.|
"It means a person can race and a person gives it and she eats healthy things"
After sharing our images that show what a healthy person is I asked the children what they wondered or wanted to know about the human body.
