Investigate the nutrients humans need and absorb how the five food groups help the body function. Strap on your safety goggles as you perform experiments to see which foods contain essential nutrients. Curlew will be offering Cells "R" Us. Here's the description of that program: Cells, cells everywhere ... from the tips of your toes to the ends of your hair. Do all cells look alike? This and other questions will be answered as you use microscopes to distinguish between various cells and learn about their specialized functions.
