Sesame Street Presents: The Body offers a unique learning experience set in the highly recognizable and reassuring world of Sesame Street. Each area contains multiple activities that provide age-appropriate learning opportunities for children of various ages and developmental levels. All exhibit components are tied into the National Science Education Standards, the Benchmarks for Science Literacy and Sesame Workshop's Healthy Habits for Life Curriculum.
"Each component of The Body exhibit is geared toward children's natural excitement about learning," added Anna Housley Juster, Director of Content, Sesame Workshop. "We believe that children learn best through active participation and self-discovery. The exhibit features a wide range of opportunities for children to observe, investigate, experiment and talk about what they are learning with their parent or caregiver. Thinkwell has done a superb job of incorporating our content and characters with their design."
Sesame Street Presents: The Body is divided into four zones:
-- How You Work: Whether you are exercising, playing, dancing or even
sleeping, your body is always hard at work. In "How You Work," kids
put their bodies to the test in "Super Grover's Obstacle Course," a
physical movement station that encourages them to crawl, jump, balance
and climb; "Rosita's Locomotion," where kids learn how different
muscles work while pumping, rowing or running; and "Grover's Dance
Party," a groovy disco where kids can boogie and move their bodies
