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.
