This online exhibition includes frequently updated articles of interest, online games and videos, and other fun stuff to helps kids understand the sophisticated workings of the human body. Students can practice using their own fine motor skills, view some amazing (and slightly gross) scenes of body systems at work, watch what happens when food is digested, and observe the invasion of a common cold virus. Click on Bodyworks Games to find several interactives including Nutrient Roundup and Muscle Hustle. Some of the games open in pop-up windows. Make sure your pop-up blocker is set to allow them to open.

tag(s): body systems (58), nutrition (157), olympics (51)

In the Classroom

This site is an excellent addition to a science lesson on the human body, health class, Olympic unit, and more! Treat your students to the interactives on your projector or interactive whiteboard. Then set up a "health and science" computer center using the various games and activities. Many of the games are excellent review activities.

These three entertaining, interactive games help students understand the importance of nutrition and healthy eating. In "Nutrient Sleuth" students must follow clues to find the missing nutrient. "Grab a Grape" requires visitors to match nutrition-related questions and answers in a Jeopardy-like format. The eye-opening "Have a Bite" activity asks students to build a meal from a menu of choices and find out how nutritious it actually is.
