Did you know that a newborn baby has softer bones than an adult? Or that no one knows what the appendix does? Or that the hardest substance in the human body is not bone, but enamel, in teeth? Your students will learn these facts, and much more, in The Body Book.

With this exciting teaching resource, and some scissors, paper, and tape, your students will be active learners—they'll make bone and stomach "books," a "movie" that shows how a tooth grows, a spinal column out of cardboard and string, and, best of all, their own paper models of the major organs and systems of the human body!

There are reproducible patterns here for the five senses, the skeleton, the brain, the digestive and respiratory systems, and more. Instructions are detailed and easy-to-follow. And these manipulative models give students a clear understanding of how their bodies are put together, and how they function.

Each chapter includes background information for you, and facts about drugs, nicotine, and alcohol, to give students the knowledge they need to keep their own bodies healthy.

The Body Book will be a great addition to your health or science curriculum, and one that your students will not only learn from, but love!
