Third-graders took part in Monday morning's session of Body Walk, an interactive, educational event at Yuma Civic Center, designed to help area third-graders make healthy choices for the rest of their lives.
The program is presented by Yuma County Health Department and features a tour that starts off with students walking into the Brain where Sir Eebrum or Lady Sara Bellum talk to the students about making good choices for good health and are reminded that "Healthy Choices Begin In Your Brain."
Next, they enter the Mouth, where a Prehistoric Caveperson talks to them about the importance of eating healthy and brushing their teeth. They leave this component with the message "Don't Let Your Teeth Become Extinct!" and get "swallowed" down the esophagus and into the Stomach and Small Intestine.
