In honor of Valentine's day, today we talked about the heart. We discussed how it is a pump and what it pumps is blood. We talked about different animals with big hearts, little hearts, many hearts and about animals with no heart at all. The kids all looked at their fists to see the size of their hearts and got to listen to their hearts with stethoscopes.
We looked at a model of the inside of a heart and talked about how the heart pumps deoxygenated blood to the lungs and then out to the body. The acorns had the opportunity to make a heart the size of their own out of play-doh.
