INDIAN LAKE -- The Wells Central School Morning Program visited Hamilton County Public Health Nursing Service June 12. Thirty-three children in grades K-3 were guided through these health-related stations.

· What's in your backyard? Senior Registered Nurse Avis Warner used stuffed animals to educate the children on ways to stay safe from rabies and ticks.

· Crafty Kids - Family Service Coordinator Daryl Parslow assisted the children in crafting bandage people and animals.

· Mrs. Mahoney's Movement - Physical Therapist Erica Mahoney ran the children through a series of exercises and an obstacle course.

· Healthy & Yummy - Director of Public Health Susan Franko fed the children frozen yoghurt, 100 percent fruit / vegetable juice and grapes.

· The Cardiovascular System - Public Health Nurse Penny Warrington played a short video on the cardiovascular system and taught the children where to find their pulse. The children also used stethoscopes to listen to their hearts and lungs.

The field trip wrapped up with a puppet show and sing-along on dental health.
