Product Description
Students use laminated paper cutouts and whiteboards to model the physiology of muscle contraction and label important structures such as thin and thick filaments, m line, z disc, H zone, I band, and sarcomere. Low tech, but high impact on understanding. With laminating, these can be used year after year.
