The Inside Story

Years 3-4

Harold gives his consent to work with the kid scientists to shrink down and explore how the body systems work together. He wants to better understand the positive impacts that physical activity and good nutrition can have on the body.


This fun interactive lesson is presented as a kid’s TV news program. It follows a team of kid scientists who seek Harold's consent before shrinking him down in size and placing him inside a tiny capsule to travel around inside the body to visit the body systems. Harold reports his findings along the way to the kid scientists; to help students learn how food is processed, the role of nutrients in our bodies, and how the heart and lungs oxygenate blood.
