What I'm learning

  • Physical Development:

I am exercising my muscles by moving around through the life-size ambulance as well as biking in the heart race. 

  • Literacy and Language:

I am learning about medical terminology and the function and purpose of various body parts by both reading and talking about them.

  • Social Learning:

I am experiencing role-playing various community helpers, like doctors and ambulance drivers.

  • Reasoning and Problem Solving:

By trying on appropriate protective gear I am learning to keep my body safe and healthy while playing sports.



Play & Learn Together:

  • Help your child try on athletic protective gear and determine which parts of the body each piece is guarding from injury.


  • Display the X-rays that are available and figure out which bones are shown.


  • Suggest looking at the different heart models together.  What new information will you learn?
