Instructions: The Human Body Under X-Ray
This game helps children to understand that the human body is a complex structure formed of different systems, organs and parts that enable our body to perform specific functions.
Puzzle: Begin by assembling the 84-piece puzzle. You’ll see that there’s a picture of a boy’s body on the left, surrounded by a series of balloons with images of the various systems of the human body. On the other side, there’s a picture of a girl surrounded by more balloons showing a selection of bones in the human skeleton.
Magic Torch: Point the magic torch at the two large pictures to reveal a number of things which are invisible to the naked eye:
- The picture on the left reveals both the names of the organs pictured in the balloons and also their relative positions in the child’s body. In this way, children can learn both the names
of the body parts and organs and also where they are in the human body, like a real-life x-ray image.
- The picture on the left reveals the names of the bones pictured and shows where they fit into the skeletal system in the girl’s body, which will be visible, as before, like an x-ray.
Game time: The Mission Cards can be used for individual play or for going head-to-head with friends. See the instructions for how to play.
The instruction manual also includes comprehensive descriptions of each of the 9 major bodily systems.
