We are studying the heart, lungs and brain at the moment.
Next week we will be using plaster cast bandages (the craft type you dunk in water, and sets hard) to make a cast of a childs upper body (over clingfilmed play clothes). This will be cut off of the child, and a head made from the cast of a balloon. This will be cut in half so the front half is removable.
Inside we are going to put models of the heart, lungs (balloons with straws to inflate), ribs (bendy pipe cleaners so that they move out as the lungs inflate) and brain.
Each of 5 groups will have a specific body part to make (e.g q group the heart) and study up on - they will present their findings to the rest of the group!
