Presenting Body Models

As we studied anatomy and learned about each body system, we added the parts to body models made from a paper bag. Sometimes there was an example, sometimes the students created their own representations. We had green nerves drawn on the backs and rigatoni spinal cords. We had red balloon hearts and blue and red yarn veins and arteries. We had white pipe cleaner ribs and paper skeletons. We had plastic bag stomachs fed from cardboard tube tracheas. As a final review of all we learned, the Dragons presented the body models they created to their fellow class members.
