What should we do to keep our bones strong? Now we are going to be in our science groups. I give you five minutes and discuss. How can you keep your skeleton strong? On paper? I don't want to be the one who writes. How can you keep your skeleton strong? Human bones are meant to be strong all the time. Discuss what you can do to make your bones stay strong. Olimba, discuss. You should all discuss in your groups and if you can't find a certain word in English please ask me. How can you keep your skeleton strong? I think, at other times, we take exercises. You eat something. There are so many types of things we can do, right? Now can you discuss about those. -Hey you, holding the pen. Can you write? What are you staring at? -What should I write?

At recess, Edith buys some doughnuts and meets briefly with her father, who is passing by. She fetches a drink of water and chats with her friends before returning for science class. The topic is the human skeleton. The students break into their science groups and are encouraged to consider "ways to keep your skeleton strong". Edith's group seems to have few ideas regarding the matter. Someone suggests nsima [cornmeal/the staple food of Malawi].
