Students have been investigating many interdisciplinary aspects of the Brilliant, Beautiful Body: body proportion drawings, amazing things the body can do, what makes a body beautiful (including cultural perceptions), having empathy for our varying abilities, and examining the social, emotional and physical aspects of body health. All students have been engaging in a body-aware stretching program, recording their hamstring and shoulder flexibility after warm ups each session.

Our next module of learning is titled Going Viral, where we will explore the body’s immune system and mathematical analyses on viral spread, which is particularly pertinent during a pandemic!
