Harris Students Take "Body Walk"

Students at Harris Elementary School had an unusual biology lesson Tuesday.

They got to take "The Body Walk", a simulated version of the inside of the body, and learn about it in a unique way.

Organizers say children need the nest information to help them stay healthy.

"For example, there's a mouth room where they learn how often they should brush their teeth, how to properly brush their teeth, why they should floss," said Katie Bouchillon of the MSU Extension Service. "And we have big teeth for them to sit on. In the lung room they learn about why smoking is horrible,. They even have an example of what a healthy lung looks like, what a dirty lung looks like."

"The Body Walk" is made available to schools through the MSU Extension Service. Any school wishing to host it may contact their county extension agent.
