As we reviewed matter/chemical and physical changes today, we discussed how our bodies are full of constant chemical changes!  We watched “Inner Life of a Cell” in class to think about everything that just one cell does (absorbing nutrients, sending/receiving messages from the rest of the body, and so much more).  Our bodies each have 10-50 trillion cells.
