E24 The One with the Poop Chart

Fact: You’re a different you after every #2… Poo knew?

The Super Naturals keep a food diary and meet with paediatric dietitian Miriam to discuss what foods help humans inside and out. This one’s all about helping kids with the basics of data aggregation. Here’s a challenge: try running this lesson without ever using the word ‘healthy’. It may help students find their curiosity and stay engaged. Students will also learn more about what the human body does with waste; they are probably keen to tell you about poo and wee but are generally less aware about how the human body relies on sweat to excrete certain substances through the skin.
