HUMAN BODY KIT

The first step to being healthy is understanding your body. Your body is made up of many interconnected systems that all work together to help you do ALL of the things you do every day. With this kit, you will learn a little bit more about a few of those systems and how you can make healthy choices to take care of your body. Recommended grades: 3-6.

Each COSI Connects Human Body Kit is filled with engaging, hands-on STEM activities. COSI’s education experts have created these activities to encourage inquiry-driven learning and reinforce Ohio's Learning standards.

The Nervous System - Test your Reaction Time and experience Optical Illusions. The nervous system controls everything you do! How fast are signals sent through the nerves in your body? Use our Reaction Time Ruler to find your own reaction time!

The Cardiovascular System - The cardiovascular system is constantly pumping blood throughout your entire body. Learn about the heart as you build a model to show how it pumps blood. Then find your own pulse!

The Respiratory System - The respiratory system is responsible for helping you breathe: something you do every minute of every day! Make a model of the lungs and learn about diseases that could affect them.

The Digestive System - Learn about the digestive system, which is responsible for breaking down the food you eat and getting the nutrients out of it to your body. Explore how bile works with a fun and colorful activity that uses soap, milk, and food coloring.

The Immune System - Our immune system works hard every day to protect you from invaders like germs, bacteria and viruses. Learn about some of the important parts of your immune system as you make a model of the different cells in your blood. Then do a simple activity with soap and pepper to demonstrate how we can help our immune systems out by washing our hands!
