Body Adventure   

This Chickasaw culture-infused health education program is based on the children’s book “Brave Little Anoli” and teaches students (grades four and five) about the power of making healthy choices using interactive lessons about fruits, vegetables, water and physical activity. Body Adventure also features a life-size, walk-through exhibit allowing children to learn about nutrition and digestion as they walk through 10 organs of the body and engage with animated videos and graphics.
