Mississippi Body Walk is a traveling exhibit that teaches children in kindergarten through fifth grade skills needed in developing healthy lifestyles. It is a 40 foot by 40 foot enclosed walk-through exhibit representing the human body.

Body Walk travels the state of Mississippi from county to county, teaching children how and why to make good health choices. Body Walk is one way educators are striving to improve the health of Mississippi’s children.


The Body Walk experience begins in the Brain Station. A group of six to eight students can start the tour every five minutes. After the brain, they travel to the mouth, the stomach, the small intestine, the heart, the lungs, the bones, the muscles, the skin and then they end at the pathway for life, where they review everything they just learned.

More than just a one day event, Body Walk offers classroom activities for use before and after the walk through, a take home activity book, and a school health kit.

MS Body Walk is based in Starkville MS, as part of the Extension service and MSU. Come with us this year as we travel Mississippi, meeting children, having fun, and learning together.
