Product Description
This is my version of an old activity I have done for the past 30 years, where students tape their thumbs back to simulate what it would be like to not have thumbs when doing everyday activities like opening a door or sharpening a pencil. The opposable thumb is discussed as a structural adaptation which evolved in the primates. Students absolutely love this activity. I changed it up a little and let them choose 10 of their own activities.
