Students Experience Hands On Health


Third and fourth grade students are jumping into the medical field.

By visiting Trinity Hospital to get a behind the scenes look of what happenes at the doctors office.

Alexus Arthur reports.

New doctors are in the office.

“This one is a cast that they would like put on your arm if you broke it.” said Mckinnley Kragh, Longfellow 3rd Grader.

Minot High students became the medical teachers for 3rd graders.

“It’s just the interaction with the kids, seeing them learn new things, it’s really rewarding.” said Sarah Garcia, Minot High Senior.

“This is my heart rate.” said Kragh.

 “I think that if they you know help out in the medical field they might want to be doctors eventually.” said Garcia.

“It’s good for my age.” said Kragh.

It’s hands on health.

“I think the coolest thing was when I got to do the microscope and like see all the particles.” said Kragh.

“We went to where how they make x-rays.” said Freyia Thompson, Longfellow 3rd Grader.

They learned how to do jobs that happen behind the scenes.

“How to do CPR with your fingers.” said Thompson.

“Orange soda has the most sugar, so that was really cool and I usually have orange soda so now I know I usually shouldn’t have that.” said Kragh.

But one learning spot cast a memory.

“The cast one.” said Thompson.

“It’s cold on the inside but it’s really warm on the out.” said Kragh.

“It kind of feels cool on like your finger.” said Thompson.

(Students started thinking about what they could be when they grow up.

“I would want to be like the one’s that like give you shots.” said Thompson.

“I like want to be like someone that’s a helper in the ambulance.” said Kragh.

“I ended up realizing I wanted to do something in the medical field.” said Garcia.

The youth of today — could be our doctors in the future. In Minot, Alexus Arthur, KX News.
