Remember playing the game "Operation" as a kid? This week, Little Explorers became medical doctors in order to embark on an expedition into the human body. First, they created a body map by tracing their own bodies and embellishing them with creative and colorful details. Next, the little MDs began the exciting journey of placing body organs in the correct location. Did they get it right? Not always, but they learned along the way that the brain is not found in the throat and the kidneys belong lower than the chest. By the end of the journey, they were preschool specialists of internal organs!
