This animal x-rays kit is a perfect starting point to engage your budding zoologists and veterinarians. It is also an excellent addition to your Light Table.
About the Animal X-rays Kit
This kit contains real animal x-rays and full colour identification cards of 14 mammals, reptiles, fish, amphibians and birds. The x-rays have been collected from veterinarian clinics and zoos. The x-rays range in size from 9cm x 17cm (3.5″x 6.5″) to 22cm x 28cm (8.5″ x 11″).
Observe the various densities and opacities of a turtle shell vs. a bird’s bones. See inside an egg. Compare mammals to amphibians. Wonder about and explore differences in skeletal structure and function compared to the human skeleton. Perfect for complementing inquiry based learning and stimulating a child’s natural curiosity about the world around them.
Use the included guide to help plan lesson activities suitable for preschool to adolescent learners.
No light table? No problem, hold the x-rays up to a window, flashlight or light.
Elementary Schools and Homeschools
A wealth of information is included in the instruction guide about the animals and their habitats, behaviours and skeletal systems. Develop lesson plans to satisfy learning outcomes in a wide range of subjects from science, social studies and literacy, to creative arts and geography.
The instruction guide included in this package contains enough information about the animals, their habitats, behaviours and skeletal systems to create many extension activities for the Montessori classroom. Guides can quickly and easily make classification cards, nomenclature cards, booklets and language materials based on the information included.
