Having visual aids to assist in teaching about human body systems will help my students who have a hard time with this abstract concept. Many times, we can look at pictures in the textbook and online, but being able to have these materials where the students can move, remove, and replace parts on actual body systems will be far more memorable. While we are trying to encourage all students to pursue advanced knowledge in the STEM areas, these items are a must! These items will not only make it easier for the children to understand the systems, they will also foster curiosity for the future. I am hoping to inspire my young middle school students to inquire into these areas as they get older.
