Welcome to third and fourth grade!  This year our class will be setting off on the adventure of a lifetime... learning about our amazing bodies and how to be healthy and happy for life! The ancient Roman poet, Virgil, said; "The greatest wealth is health."  There are many health crises facing our children and our nation, from obesity and inactivity to diabetes.  Our research focus will be on anatomy, health and wellness, and medical careers, which are a leading source of jobs in the U.S. We'll research health topics, write and draw, conduct experiments, read, watch videos, listen to guest presenters, go on field trips, participate in wellness and physical fitness challenges,  and even have our very own Class MD who will be doing weekly health and wellness posts, hosting a You Tube channel with videos about medical careers and hospital tours, as well as live webinars with us to answer any questions the students may have about their health and medical careers.

"He who has health has hope; and he who has hope, has everything."  ~ Arabic Proverb
                "If any thing is sacred, the human body is sacred."  ~ Walt Whitman
"I acknowledge the privilege of being alive in a human body at this moment, endowed with senses, memories, emotions, thoughts, and the space of mind in its wisdom aspect."  ~ Alex Grey

Welcome back for another exciting year of learning!
