Hands-On Body Systems: Cardiovascular and Respiratory Systems
This module empowers students with body system lessons that are proven to increase student learning and application of material, help make difficult content easier to learn, and can be immediately implemented into medical skills and terminology…and they are affordable!
This module contains many fun & successful teaching tricks by having students build the Cardiovascular System, Gross Respiratory Organs, and Microscopic structures of Lungs. Students can 'see' the inter-relationship of these two systems with each other as they build them on their flat board. Many times textbooks only show the systems independently, so this activity puts your students ahead. Great windows for pathology application can also be used doing this activity.
Students will love learning through this activity and will gain confidence in their ability to apply knowledge to these two major body systems.
This module contains time frame, lesson plans, supply list, classroom organization, step-by-step building instructions with pictures.
