Veggie Skeleton

This week we were studying the bones.
The kids built this vegetable skeleton to help remember some of the bones. 

Oops, someone ate one of the phalanges on the foot! 

After constructing the skeleton the kids were instructed to pick one of the vegetables and research the nutrients it provides for our body.

Micah immediately said, "Carrots, and they have vitamin A which is helpful to our eyes." 
Guess the eyeballs and carrot smoothie pops we made during eye unit actually helped him retain some nutritional facts.  This mom says, "Hip Hip Hooray!"

Hannah researched zucchini.  Zucchini is full of water, potassium, fiber, vitamin A, and vitamin C.  The minerals and vitamins help boost your immune system, and promotes the health of your eyes, heart, lungs, and skin.

Lauren and I researched mushrooms.  A medium portabella mushroom has more potassium than a banana. Potassium helps lower elevated blood pressure and reduce the risk of stroke.
