Grades 1–2. Immediately engage young learners as they investigate major body parts and the organs responsible for the 5 senses. First, students use Glo Germ™ to simulate the spread of germs and practice good hand-washing techniques; black lights help them assess their thoroughness. The unit next focuses on ways to stay healthy, using a food pyramid chart to explain balanced diets and nutritional needs. Students discuss heredity after examining student-provided photos and are introduced to inherited and acquired traits between parent and offspring. In the final lessons, students investigate body systems and how they interact with one another. They take a close look at the skeletal system, joints, and muscles, comparing them to mechanical devices that allow many forms of movement.

Unit Kit includes a Teacher's Guide, complete with hands-on activity instructions and blackline masters, and enough materials for a class of 24 students. Consumable items can be replaced by purchasing a prepackaged Refurbishment Set.
