Fifth graders began their study of the human body this week with an experiential lesson facilitated by dedicated parent volunteers. Students felt their pulse before and after exercising, used a lung model to understand the mechanics of breathing, experimented with possible bone shapes, learned some of the reasons we have fingerprints, proved that digestion begins in the month, mapped their taste buds, tested their reflexes and much more! Many thanks to our parent volunteers for making this happen: Ali Sussman, Deborah Stein, Melinda Engel, Jessie Heller, and Jeanne Haselkorn.
Our students analyze, synthesize and interpret deeply even at a young age. Scientific curiosity is enhanced by Torah study that encourages our children to question and explore complex issues from biology to animal behavior to genetics. This is the Power of Perelman!
