Tiny - but good
on 27 September 2009
When you get this item it's in a box, and the pieces are arranged around it to show parts.
At first I assumed that as it stood, they were all of the bits it broke down into.
OH NO, it breaks right down, small pieces sub-divide and can be taken apart to look at individual body parts and organs.
The pieces are nicely coloured and sort of fit together into larger chunks that eventually fit into the body.
I will be honest - I have NEVER been able to get all the bits correctly back into the body. It might just be me (probably is) but, the stomach just won't shove in there!!!!!
However, as a 'roving tutor' it's SO handy to carry round. I have it in a very small ziplock bag now that goes round with me.
The kids love to tear it all apart and try to put it back together. It's good for talking about different organs and their jobs too, students are always amazed when you tell them just how long the small intestine REALLY is!
I love this for its convenience in my job.
