My students know about general health, but they don't know the wonders that can lie behind it. The human body is a complex and wonderful machine that leads us through our everyday life. Through our curriculum, students get to learn first hand how the human body works.
Our school is not given a lot of opportunity for hands on activities.
I always try to ensure my students that the human body is a bundle of organized chaos. I describe the fact that their body is their only body and they should have a right to know how it works! I want to be able to give my students the hands on experience of seeing the human body at work!
Through our curriculum, students learn the wonders of the human body, but it is hard for them to grasp the understanding of how it truly works and develops. The human torso replica will give students the visual opportunity to explore the body. They will be able to see a real life representation of what their body looks like on the inside, as well as understanding the organized chaos that lives beneath our skin. Having the opportunity to show students the way the body is structured will allow them to better understand how the systems work, function, and flow together.
This will also give us another form of assessment for students in a visual format.
Allowing the model to serve as a base to label organs and assess students on the content they are learning.
