Boy, Were We Wrong About the Human Body!.pdf
Long, long ago, ancient Egyptians thought that all of our ideas and personalities came from our hearts—boy, were they wrong!
Debunking old (and sometimes silly) myths about the human body, this new addition to the Boy, Were We Wrong series shows how we discovered modern biology and medicine. From healing by applying leeches, to the ancient practice of acupuncture, to the discovery and study of DNA, this is the story of what we know about our bodies and how we still have lots to learn.
A perfect selection for Common Core or STEM collections
