Product Description:

Break out the scissors, tape, paste and paper and make a stomach book, 3-D skeleton, a growing-tooth "movie," a cardboard spinal column, manipulative eye, and more! The book begins with a study of the sense organs: tongue, eye, ear, nose, and skin. Building models of each helps children understand how they work. The rest of the book is on body systems: skeletal, digestive, respiratory, circulatory, excretory, and muscular. Building models of the systems and some of their components after discussing them and performing some illustrative activities provides for active learning. Model patterns used are reproducible, so everyone can join in.

I did this in a co-op with my older two children and it was a lot of fun. They seemed to learn a lot and so I wanted to do it with my younger two children as well.

My son (11) and daughter (8) and I learned so much from this activity bookand we had so much fun doing it too! Talk about hands-on learning! Over the course of a couple months we learned about and created each body section until we had completed an entire human body Even a year later we continue to use our skeleton friend as a handy resource for remembering our anatomy It was definitely worth the price - what a bargain!

I purchased this book as a hands-on supplement to my third grader's science unit on the human body It proved to be an invaluable experience for both of us My daughter had so much fun creating the model that she forgot it was school! The book helped her to have a concrete understanding of the placement and function of our body parts (I learned quite a lot as well!) The book provides directions and reproducible pages to complete a whole model of the human body but there is also the option to study just one particular system (eg the digestive system) It's perfect for the child who loves crafts and who works well with manipulative-based instruction Our family will definitely use this again Before using the book I would suggest thoroughly reading and constructing the model yourself first as well as copying the pages onto a heavier weight paper (like cardstock)for durability I found some of the directions to be too difficult for my 8-year-old to follow without some guidance It made a great together activity and an older child would probably be able to finish it indepedently
