Healthy Harold

Year 5 was visited by Healthy Harold this week. We all had a lot of fun learning more about the dangers of smoking. It was interesting to learn more about how our body reacts to the toxins in cigarettes and how these can effect the our body. We learned some new vocabulary as well including trachea, alveoli, cilia and bronchial tube. Do you know what these terms mean? One of the things that really surprised us was that there are 4003 chemicals in each cigarette and more than 60 of these are proven to cause cancer. Amazingly is it estimated that 7.2 billion cigarette butts are still thrown into the Australian environment every year. Thank to Libby for a real fun and informative session.
