The mouth is where digestion starts. This month we have learnt the names of the different parts of our mouth and the importance of taking care of it. Specially our teeth which are very important in the process of digestion. We have learnt that there are foods which contain a lot of sugar and these foods are not good for our teeth and our health. We have also learnt that it is very important to go to the dentist every year and to brush our teeth to help them stay healthy.
In 1 and 2 year we have learnt what happens to food when it enters our body. We have learnt the most important parts of our digestive system, a how food is transformed. It is a very complex process but a fun experiment has helped us understand it.
We have brought different plants to school, and have made presentations for our classmates, and other students of the school. We found out the name of our plant, the different parts they had and explained how we take care of them. We were able to smell them and touch their leaves, even their spikes! We saw violets, cactus, albahaca, geraniums etc. We also got to see plants students had at home, like banana trees or tomato plants. We had a really good time!
I would like to thank all the families for their collaboration, Muchas gracias!
