How does the body work?

How the Human Body Works? Let’s study different parts of the human body including the eyes, ears, and nose, and their functions. We will also think about what we should do to eat healthily, stay active, and maintain our physical wellbeing. This will help children to make their own correct decisions about what they should do to keep their body fit and healthy. (This space is designed for pre-schoolers to elementary school students.)
