During our Nutrition week in preschool, the students learned about how the body works and why we must eat healthy balanced meals for healthy bodies.
We drew an outline of a body on a big sheet of paper. We drew a small circle in the middle of the chest to represent the heart. Then we drew red lines going from the heart to all other parts of the body. We drew blue lines all over the body going back towards the heart. We explained that the red lines represented the blood moving from the heart to feed the entire body and the blue lines represented the used blood going back to the heart for a fill up.
We talked about all body parts needing a healthy flow of blood to do their jobs in the body. We talked about how healthy foods and good exercise provides for healthy blood flow to keep the body healthy and growing.
