As part of our wondering about the human body. Some children were curious to know what an organ is and if exercise helps the body.
So we set up a provocation for the students with the following questions about an organ that benefits from exercise...
What keeps your heart healthy?
How big is your heart?
Where is your heart?
What do you see, think and wonder?
What is blood? What does it do?
What happens to your heart when you run, jump, walk?
As students made their way around the classroom we sat back and observed. We were excited to see what they would do and how they would answer the questions.
