I blogged a few weeks ago about local field trips that are free. We were able to go on such a field trip yesterday; to the Fitness Center.
When we arrived at the fitness center, the diabetes awareness director gave us a presentation on childhood diabetes.
He showed them what their blood should look like and what it looks like with too much sugar.
He showed them what their arteries look like with too much fat built up.
He also showed them what a kidney looks like, but my kids are already pros on kidneys. :)
After that, he taught them some exercises they can do to stay healthy. I think this was their favorite part. What do you think? Look at their faces!
