Human Body Study - Skin

 Today we continued our Human Body study with skin.  We talked about sweat and evaporation and how they cool us.  They recalled how a wet sock feels cold. Then we used a dab or rubbing alcohol on one wrist and a dab of water on the other to show that different things evaporate at different rates and have different cooling ability.  The children made matchbooks for their Human Body Lapbook with a diagram of skin and a paragraph inside retelling some of the things they've learned about skin.
