Product Description
This activity pairs very nicely with the Make-A-Muscle activity. During the Muscle Tissue unit, my advanced seniors and juniors often need a quick break from lecture to apply the content. While learning about sarcomeres (one of the most complex of all topics in A&P in my opinion), I give students a 10-minute break to make their own sarcomere (using pipe cleaners, a straw, and a notecard) to understand the way a sarcomere moves using actin and myosin. Students can clip this into their binders or notebooks if you are using interactive notebooks!
