Now, this educational classic has been updated with additional content and repackaged to give it a fresh, bold, contemporary look and form that makes it much easier to shelve and display. The 12-inch, 24-piece skeleton is realistically designed with moving joints, and can be displayed in its clear plastic bell jar. The book is packed with projects, experiments, and facts about all the systems of the human body. The focus, of course, is on the bones—what they are made of, how they grow, how they work. New is an expanded section on paleontology and fossil remains incorporating the latest news from the field, including the newly discovered hobbit-sized humans from the last Ice Age. This is a great gift for every kid, one that truly brings science to life.
Contains projects, experiments, and facts about the human body (Did you know, for instance, that the funny bone isn't a bone at all?). The model skeleton gives kids a fun learning experience. In assembling it, kids learn about the femur, tibia, and all the other bones that give our body its shape.
