Macon East Academy first grade students have been busy! They recently visited the Let’s Pretend Hospital, an education program designed by Baptist Health that introduces children to healthcare in a fun and interactive way! Our class was “admitted” into the pretend hospital and had the opportunity to visit and learn more about the lab, the Harvey Heart Room, patient rooms, the operating room, radiology, the nursery, and the emergency room. They learned so much at each stop in their tour of the hospital!
Our first grade also recently celebrated “popsicles for publishing”! Their class books came in, and they are officially published authors and illustrators!
