RIDGELAND, MS (WLBT)- Promoting good health was the goal of the MSU extension service when they set up an exhibit at Ann Smith Elementary School in Ridgeland.
Members of the organization gathered at the school Friday morning to present their body walk exhibit. It featured a huge walk through human body.
Students learned about everything from the brain, to the heart and lungs, to bones and muscles and how they work.
"This program is designed to teach our children about food and fitness at an early age so that when they grow up they can learn to be healthier adults. That way they, you know, learn how to portion size, how to exercise at a young age, and hopefully take it on so that we won't have so many health problems as they grow up," said Vivian Cade, MSU Extension Service.
A dentist was also there to provide lessons on the proper way to brush your teeth.
