Scienstructable 3D Dissection Model®: Sponge Paper Model

(in stock)


Teachers agree—Scienstructable products are excellent for in-class and remote learning!

With this hands-on, engaging activity, students color, cut out, and assemble a hands-on paper model while learning to identify and explain the anatomical structures and functions of the sponge. Use the eco-friendly model as a dissection-free exploration, a pre-dissection study tool, or even as a summative assessment for comparative anatomy. The model is created from downloadable, printable templates, provided in both blackline and color. Additional supporting digital resources include a downloadable, editable PowerPoint® presentation with bell work activities, instructions, notes, and an embedded answer key, along with non-editable PDF handouts of guided readings about the sponge and its anatomy, graphic organizers, extension questions, and an answer key—all easily accessed at CarolinaScienceOnline.com, Carolina's easy-to-use learning management tool. Use the resources in a variety of ways: simply print and distribute, display them in class, and/or assign them to your students through CarolinaScienceOnline.com. This is a 1-year subscription license for 1 individual teacher.
