This is an easy to assemble 3-D paper model of the digestive, circulatory, respiratory and excretory system and of course the skeleton. This is ideal for an interactive notebook, differentiation and revision. When it's complete the students can knifelessly dissect a human body. They can see where and how the major organs are situated relative to one another. It's a very visually appealing resource. In addition it acts as a revision foldable when used in conjunction with the worksheets provided.
Here's how the students make the model:
★ They cut out the skeleton and the organs. These come in full color and blackline so that the students can color them in themselves.
★ They follow the instructions provided and assemble the organs in order. They can even do this as a homework assignment and then use class time for assembly.
★ Full instructions are provided for assembly and the accompanying powerpoint has photographs showing how the model should look at each stage.
A 12 slide powerpoint presentation accompanies this to help students with the assembly.
Over the years teaching science I noticed that some students were simply unable to make good notes. They just didn't know what was important in a topic.
So the idea of prospecting for notes was born. Like prospecting for anything precious, the prospector notes are designed to get the student to elicit the important information for a topic. The students dig around for the information and take ownership for their own notes and learning. The answers provide the foundation for their notes.
There are 4 worksheets in this product; circulatory system, digestive system, excretory system and the skeletal system (teacher answer sheets are provided).
Once they have their notes they can then print these off and paste them onto the doors of the foldable. Their foldable now acts as a very visual engaging resource for revision.
The pdf has 18 pages of skeletons, human body parts and instructions for assembly. The skeleton and organs are provided in color and blackline.
