Having written before about this family’s love for science (especially my guys’ love for science), I’ve shared experiments, things we’ve studied, and more. Science is easily studied, but it can become so much more real when you have the right manipulatives and illustrations on hand….for instance, this next product from Educational Insights.
The Inside Out Lenticular Human Body Poster is a fabulous way to study the human body and to see it in a whole new light. We can’t really imagine what lies underneath our skin; we can try, but it’s illustrated posters and pictures like this that make it become very real. This poster is a kind of 3D poster that changes depending on the angle that you hold it. It can be hard to see the different parts, but it is truly an awesome way to get to know what is inside our bodies.
So, what all can you see with this Human Body Poster? How is it different from other human body posters? Well, you get 4 views with this poster. The first view is 2 kids, a boy and a girl. Another view would be the organs, such as the brain, intestines, stomach, heart, lungs, etc. Next is the muscular system, and lastly, is the skeletal system. It really puts a whole new perspective on how amazing the human body is…how intricately detailed it is. For us, it’s a great way to talk about Creation and how amazing it is that God thought of every little detail when creating our bodies….how incredibly amazing it is that all of these parts come together to form a body that works together in every way.
You can purchase the Inside Out Lenticular Human Body Poster for $19.99 from Educational Insights; it’s geared for ages 8-11. This poster is definitely a great supplement for any study of the human body. We are actually keeping it hung up in our little classroom area of the kitchen. It’s made of a sturdy material, so it doesn’t bend or tear at all, making it perfect for my boys. It’s fun just to sit and pore over sometimes, looking at all the organs and bones. The muscular system just flat out amazes me. You can Like Educational Insights on Facebook.
