There is a new food pyramid in town !!! Visit the MyPyramid.gov site (there is an active hyperlink in comments).

Compare the differences in what you find and be ready to share what you learned.
What might you suggest your family do keep healthy and fit (diet, exercise?)

Once you've commented on the blog, you and a partner can begin playing this interactive review game:
Check out the site called "Sink Your Teeth into the Human Digestive System". Click on comments to get to the site's URL and explore away. Once you've explored the site, post your own comment.
Options for your comment:
Share interesting facts you learned.
Share what you want to learn about the digestive system.
Share the site's best features.
Share a question you have about digestion.
Respond to someone else's comment, answering a question they had.
Have fun exchanging information and learning from one another's ideas.
Please complete the following essay. When we return, we'll share these with our project partner classes and ask them respond with additional facts they've found. Work hard and do your best.

Attached is an activity sheet that will invite you to explore the Cardiovascular System. There are several animated videos that not only tell about transport processes, they show you each step along the way. We're viewing and reading these sites in today's class in order to create flowchart that will show the steps in the process of transport throughout the body.
Download the sheet to access the URL's by clicking on them instead of typing them in. You will receive a hard-copy of the activity sheet as well.
Have fun !
