BODY VENTURE is coming to Louisburg

December 7 and 8

An exciting exhibit is coming to Louisburg in December!  It will be available on Wednesday, December 7 to Broadmoor students and then on Thursday, December 8 to Rockville students .

Body Venture is a unique educational program designed to involve students in learning the skills and choices for a healthy lifestyle.  Children learn about the importance of good nutrition choices by walking through a 45-foot by 50-foot exhibit representing the human body.  The exhibit was designed and created by the Kansas State Department of Education, Child Nutrition & Wellness.

Students tour the human body, in groups of eight to ten, enter the school lunchroom and become a food such as a carrot, low-fat milk or a piece of chicken.

In the second station, they walk through a giant ear into the brain.  Inside the huge brain dome, students experience "brainwaves" and learn about brain function.

The "foods" step into the exhibit's larger-than-life mouth, are "swallowed" through the esophagus tunnel and move into the stomach dome.

From the stomach, the students travel through the small intestine where they become nutrients, then are "absorbed" into the blood.  They they follow the path of the nutrients to the heart, lung, bone, muscle and skin stations.  Students leave the body through a cut in the skin and proceed through Power panther's Pathway to Life.This final station recaps key health concepts from each of the ten previous stations.
