Dr. Livingston's Anatomy Jigsaw Puzzle: The Human Thorax
In this second volume, Dr. Livingston's Anatomy Jigsaw Puzzle: The Human Thorax, your student will assemble a cross-section with a clear view of the entire rib cage and its contents. As he completes this puzzle, he'll frame the organs with cross-sections of the sternum, ribs, and thoracic vertebrae. Inside that protective cage lies a wealth of vital and vulnerable organs: the trachea carries air to the two lungs, and sitting between them beats the four-chambered heart.
About Dr. Livingston's Anatomy Jigsaw Puzzles
A popular pastime during the COVID-19 pandemic was jigsaw puzzles. With a world that felt out of control, jigsaw puzzles provided a clear goal and a sense of purpose. Families could gather and spend an afternoon assembling a puzzle, or the pieces could be left on a table to tinker on whenever the mood hit. Because jigsaw puzzles engage both sides of the brain, they are an excellent choice for people of all ages and not just during a quarantine!
This makes us pleased to have Dr. Livingston's beautiful, larger-than-life, medically-illustrated human anatomy puzzles. Each uniquely-shaped puzzle presents scientifically accurate cross-sections of the human body, at about twice the size of a real human. Your students will find themselves naturally learning as they work on the different sections of anatomy. Each puzzle box is designed to look like a vintage medical text and includes a front cover that seals shut with a durable magnetic clasp. A detailed, labeled image identifying all the parts is on the inside flap of the box. The puzzle pieces are of good quality, and the educational value of this puzzle is unsurpassed. Each Dr. Livingston puzzle may be assembled and displayed individually or combined to create a continuous 10' tall jigsaw puzzle of the human body. There are seven Dr. Livingston volumes available.
