Paper Models can be a great tool for reviewing structure and organization. Here are some ways to use your paper model of the digestive system:
1. Print a set on card stock. Have students work in groups to assemble the model as a review activity. No gluing or taping required - students can assemble and dissemble as much as necessary!
2. Have students work in groups or pairs to make a life size model of the human body. Provide roller paper for students to trace and cut out an outline of their body. Have them color, cut out, label, and arrange the organs over their paper body. Looks great as a hallway or classroom display, and other paper model systems can be purchased to use as well (coming soon)
3. Make a laminated set for yourself. Glue magnets to the backs for a great visual aid during lectures.
