Activity: what keeps us healthy


drawing by Marcus, age 7

As spring quickly approaches, sneezing season is upon us. Gesundheit! But are those sneezes an allergic response to pollens in the air or a sign of a lingering winter flu virus?

No matter the season, the immune system is always hard at work defending the body against common illnesses and infectious diseases to keep us healthy.

Grab a box of crayons and download this activity to draw the different parts of your body that work together to keep you strong and healthy.

You need:

  • drawing utensils: crayons, markers, or colored pencils
  • Immune system activity: print it!
