Year 8&9 pupils made a model digestive system on a tie. By the end of the lesson pupils were able to point out major organs of the digestive system and also their location. More able pupils could also give functions of each organ.
Pupils really enjoyed making their ties and were keen to show them off and take them home when finished.
The templates were adapted from “Adorable wearables that teach about the human body”, published by Scholastic (ISBN: 0-439-22269-9)
