Health Museum Houston

Back in April, we took a field trip to the Houston Health Museum.  Pig lungs, heart beats, and DNA chains, oh my!  First, we got a great visual of how smoking affects the lungs.  Fascinating!

Listen to the heartbeat!

The kids also got to explore cells, and the girls and I learned about teeth and tastebuds while the boys made DNA key chains.  I love that we have the opportunity to go on these field trips with our homeschool group.  Affordable, and the places we've been to so far this year have really been doing a great job setting up classes and opportunities for hands-on exploration.  Love this kind of learning!
