Create your own three-dimensional paper model of the human skeleton with this exciting and educational activity book. Easy to assemble, the finished model stands 16 1/2 inches tall and offers an accurate representation of the complete skeletal structure, with flexible joints that allow it to be posed in hundreds of lifelike attitudes.
No complicated tools or expensive materials are required. With an X-acto knife, glue, needle and thread, preteen and teenage youngsters can cut out clearly labeled individual pieces and assemble them with little or no adult help. Easy-to-follow diagrams and step-by-step instructions show young model builders how to cut, fold, glue, and sew each component.
Ideal for use in school or home, this fascinating project will familiarize children with the underlying structure of the human body, the interrelationship of its parts, and the terminology used to describe them. Parents and teachers will find it an excellent means of encouraging the study and understanding of the body's internal framework.
