On Wednesday when the year threes were on camp we got to create a human. Max and I agreed on the name Gregory. Any way max had to trace me on a big piece of paper. After Max had finished tracing me we had to cut it out. Then what we had to do was draw what we already knew about the body.
Once we had finished that we had to get a computer and make some corrections and get some facts . Max and I chose to get some facts about the brain and the heart and I will now tell you fact about the heart and then the brain. First the heart. The human study of the heart and various disorders is know as cardiology. Now the the brain. The weight of the brain is about the same wait of a rabbit. When you get past all of the work it was a really a fun task.
On Wednesday we had had a health lesson.We had to choose a partner and we had to choose who would be traced. We had two pieces of butchers paper, but it was too short, so we had to add a piece for the head to fit on. Then we had to trace a person and draw and label organs like a heart, bladder, brain and so on.
I was with Gabi and we called our guy Esophagus, because we both liked the name. I drew lots of pictures and we both coloured the pictures in. I drew a heart, brain lungs and a kidney.Two of the facts were your heart breathes 60 to 100 times per minute and your brain is the centre of your nervous system.
On Wednesday we had a health lesson. We had to choose a partner and we had to choose who was going to be traced. We had two pieces of butchers paper.Then had to glue them together. We added a tiny head bit, because it was too short.Then we traced a person and drew the organs on the body.Here are some examples of organs, liver, lungs,heart,brain,kidney and so on.Oh and i was with Matthew.Pi.
After we finished labeling we had to look up facts about the organs in our bodies. We also drew a picture to show the organs. We then had to write facts for each organ. Here are some examples.
Your Heart beats 60 to 100 beats a minute.
Also your brain is the centre of your nervous system.
On the 25 June we did an activity with our teacher Mrs Pike. We had to draw one of our team members and my team choose to draw me. They had to trace me from my head to my legs and when we had finished we had to label our organs. We got to use the laptops to sketch the organs, but it was hard to find a good picture to sketch, but eventually we found one for every organ. The organs we drew were the bladder, heart, kidney and lungs. After we had to cut out our body and stick on our organs, we called our body Alex.
My team, Ryder, Matthew and I, showed it to the class. We explained the body parts to the class and gave an interesting fact on them. In conclusion I had a great time and learnt that stomach acid can melt a five cent piece.
On Wednesday 25th of June we had Health. Mrs Pike told us to get into groups of 2 or 3. Hannah and Rosie were my partners. After we got into groups we got told what was happening. We were going to make bodies. We traced Hannah and then named it. We named it Hannah at first, but then we changed it to Kevin.
Then we started. Hannah and Rosie did the Brain and I did the heart. We did the heart and the brain and we moved onto the lungs. I looked up information for the brain. The information we got was, the Brain controls the body. For the heart we got, the heart is one of the most important organs in the human body. The kidneys are bean shaped organs.
On Wednesday 25th June Mrs Pike took us for health, she made us split up into partners and trace one of the partners bodies. My partner was Elissa , we had a long debate, but I ended up tracing Elissa. Although Elissa couldn’t fit on the paper so we had to get a head extension.
After I had traced Elissa we drew on all the body parts we knew. It didn’t look very good though, probably because the ribs looked like bacon. When we had finished this copy Mrs pike made us do all of the organs. At first Elissa did the brain and I did the heart. I finished before her though, because she was putting lots of “detail” into it. As soon as I had finished the heart I did the kidneys, I found out that the kidneys look like a baked bean with an afro.
When Elissa had finally finished the brain she started looking up facts for the brain and heart. We found out that the Kidneys represent 0.5% of the bodies total weight. The heart is the most important organ in the body and that the brain is made out of 90% water. After this we looked up all the other body parts and decided to call him Insane Bolt.
For health this term we have been exploring bones. Last Friday our class took over the St. Joseph building while the Year 5s were on camp. We got into groups and had to trace around a person’s body onto the very large butcher’s paper we were given. We then had to correctly place all the bones inside the traced body. There were a few challenges and laughs along the way, but we all got there in the end. What do you think of our skeletons?
On Tuesday the 26th the Year 4s from Mr Baldock’s and Mrs Molloy’s class went to the Life Ed Van. Andrea the lady in charge showed us a video about fruit and vegetables. Andrea also showed us a video of respect and how we should treat people.
Then we went into groups and did two puzzles. The first puzzle was about medicine and we had to split the medicines into groups. The not medicines in one group and the medicines in the other group.
Then we had to get a puppet from the wall and go back into our groups and make a two minute play about respect. Then we showed our plays to the class. Then we had to say goodbye to our puppets and put them on the wall.
Then Andrea woke up Harold the giraffe. Then Harold chose two people one person to hand out stickers and the other person to be the line leader. We were all in one line and we could give Harold an ear five or a giant hug. Most people chose to give Harold a hug and when they did Harold would tickle their ear. Below are some photos of our experiences.
