Board Kit and Desk Kit pieces are easily and
quickly cut out using ordinary scissors.

These kits come on magnetic sheets that average 24″ by 30″ (some kits contain more; Raging Hormones, the Skeleton, and Blank Labels contain less). They are intended first for assembling by you, the teacher, during lecture, and then by the students for practice and review.

Levels of Organization

LEVELS OF ORGANIZATION

As students arrange the 14 levels in order and match them to the pictures, they will build their understanding of biology’s underlying structure. Great tool for your course introduction and for later review! Kit includes a worksheet. The largest pieces are 12″ by 4″.

Available in a discounted package.

Protein Synthesis

PROTEIN SYNTHESIS KIT

Translation made easy with manipulatives! Show students the features on the larger tRNA, then have them use the smaller ones to model the process. Ribosome pieces can be moved along the mRNA strand as amino acids bond to the growing polypeptide chain. Can be used with the Macromolecules Kit or stand alone. Largest piece is approximately 27″ long.

Available in a discounted package. Also available in Desk Kit version.

$65


Cellular Respiration

CELLULAR RESPIRATION

Enacting the process with the pieces of this engaging kit will help students understand and remember! Includes an optional lecture. Largest piece approx. 22″ long.

Special Note: This kit works well with the Photosynthesis Kit.

Available in a discounted package.
$75


Enzymes

ENZYMES KIT
How better to show the importance of proteins? Illustrates basics of enzyme activity, including competitive inhibition. Primary and tertiary structure can be used to explain denaturation. Background information includes examples of enzyme-related diseases to add interest to your lecture. Largest piece is approximately 20″ by 2″.

Available in a discounted package.
$60


Animal Cells

CELLS KIT
Building the cell from “scratch” not only reduces confusion but engages the students as they put the organelles in place and compare the plant cell, the animal cell and the bacteria and viruses. Largest piece is 23″ in diameter. Includes Plant Cells (below left).  A great addition to your teaching tool kit!

Available in a discounted package. Also available in Desk Kit version.

Cell Membrane

CELL MEMBRANE KIT
It’s complex. It’s abstract. But cell transport is made simple with these colorful hands-on pieces! Build from the stripped-down phospholipid backbone, adding cholesterol and membrane proteins as you explain. For an effective teaching technique, have students explain diffusion of oxygen and carbon dioxide with the pieces or even use the sodium-potassium pump to model the neural impulse! The largest piece is approximately 30″ by 10″.

Available in a discounted package. Also available in Desk Kit version.
$65



Photosynthesis Kit

PHOTOSYNTHESIS KIT
Imagine your students at the board explaining photosynthesis! The moveable pieces make it clear, and the accompanying script and suggested class activity are there to help. You control the level of complexity by selecting which pieces to use. Students learn and remember the process because they enact it! Largest piece is approximately 10″ by 12″. Stands alone or use with the phospholipid bilayer from the Cell Membrane Kit (above).

Special Note: This kit works well with the Cellular Respiration Kit.

Available in a discounted package.

$75


Digestive/Respiratory System

DIGESTIVE & RESPIRATORY SYSTEMS KIT

Let students learn the digestive process step-by-step as they build the alimentary canal and add the accessory organs. The set includes the respiratory system organs. Infective agents of both systems are shown and can be matched to organs they infect or used for separate lessons. Includes a transparency master for outlining the torso. Approximately 25″ high, assembled, excluding torso outline.

Available in a discounted package.
$60



Human Heart

THE HUMAN HEART KIT

Students can connect the great blood vessels to the heart and take a blood cell on a journey through the heart, switching from the deoxygenated cell to the oxygenated one at the appropriate place. Students move the cell through the heart, and they will remember its path. Includes arrows to show the circulatory pattern. The heart is 23″ in height.

Available in a discounted package.

$60





Skeletal System

SKELETAL SYSTEMS KIT

Students assemble a skeleton and attach contracted and relaxed versions of biceps and triceps muscles to show flexing of the elbow. Includes smaller versions of our labels for students to apply as they review. The assembled skeleton is 30″ tall.

Available in a discounted package.

$60

Food Chain & Energy Pyramid

FOOD CHAIN & ENERGY PYRAMID KIT

Students join the organisms pictured into food chains, using the included background information sheet, then join the food chains into a food web. The trophic level pieces of the energy pyramid can then be placed to show energy transfer. Challenge students to explain the energy loss! The kit includes 18 separate organisms with an energy pyramid 15″ high.

(See the Kelp Forest Food Web Desk Kit for an enriching extension of this lesson.)

Available in a discounted package.
$60


Genetics Kit

GENETICS KIT

Add a little punch to your Punnett squares! Students enjoy placing the kit’s phenotype pictures over their calculated genotypes. Cross round and wrinkled peas and green and yellow peas in a variety of ways for learning monohybrid and dihybrid crosses. Red, white and pink flowers show incomplete dominance. Set includes two pairs of chromosomes for explanations of mitosis and meiosis. Largest piece is approximately 3″ by 10″.

Available in a discounted package.

$60


Raging Hormones

RAGING HORMONES KIT

Students track cholesterol’s conversion to testosterone and then to estrogen on a worksheet as you show the changes on the board with the pieces in this kit.
