Students from St Andrews find out how doctors can help us

Friday, 16 December 2011 From Issue Vol. XIX No. 50 By  Marsha Foster, Year 4 teacher at St Andrews International School

As part of their unit on the human body systems, students in Year 4 visited Bangkok-Rayong Hospital.  The students were learning about what happens when our bodies aren’t working properly and what doctors can do to help us.

We visited the physical therapy room, where students got to try out some of the equipment which doctors use to help people regain strength and movement in their arms and legs.  We then visited the x-ray room and were able to see what bones look like when they’ve been damaged or broken.

One of the highlights of the trip was getting to watch doctors perform brain scans and ultrasounds on patients.  It was amazing to see and hear the human heart beating.  At the end of the trip, students got to climb into an ambulance and learn about emergency care.  This educational trip provided a wonderful end to our unit and helped the children to expand their knowledge on the human body systems.
