Our skin is an amazing organ. It’s all over us! It’s waterproof. It keeps all our inside bits like blood and organs inside. It protects us from germs and dirt. Join Nadia as she teaches us all about the importance of our skin. It allows us to feel or touch things. It protects us from danger. We learn how to protect our skin as well by wearing sunscreen and not touching hot objects. Terminology used includes: dermis, epidermis, subcutaneous layer.
