Every organ performs certain tasks in our body. The brain in our head is the body's control center. The heart pumps blood through the blood vessels into every part of our body. In the lungs, the oxygen needed by all the cells in the body is absorbed. The liver, gallbladder, and pancreas help with digestion.

Information and Ideas:
• The teacher/educator should, using the masking tape and glue stick, join together several sheets of news-paper to create a paper surface on which a child can lie comfortably with arms and legs stretched out and slightly apart. The newspaper should be fixed on the floor using masking tape or stones. Any clean, firm, level surface (wood, con-crete) can also be used instead of newspaper.
• Please observe the general safety and hygiene measures and safety instructions in the respective teaching methods as well as the applicable safety guidelines for your school.
• All materials mentioned in the instructions will have to be purchased directly from commercial sources.
