This week we learned a bit about the internal organs. We started with the brain which is like the computer of the body. It tells our body how fast to breathe and how fast our heart should beat. We discovered the lungs help us breathe and puts oxygen in our blood. Our stomach digests food, the small intestines take nutrients out of our food and large intestines gets the remaining water from indigestible food and creates waste (poop) or as I referred to a bowel movement. The kidneys process excess water and creates urine. The liver removes toxins from the body. The liver is my fave internal organ. What is yours?
Did you know?
Q) What is the difference between a Cantaloupe and Muskmelon?
A) A Muskmelon is a member of the reticulatus group, characterized by a net like ribbed rind and sweet orange flesh. A Cantaloupe is a member of the cantalupensis group, named for Cantalupo, a former papal villa near Rome. This group is characterized by a rough, warty rind and sweet orange flesh.
