Which bones do all the vertebrates have in common? Do turtles have teeth? Children will soon find out as they explore the bone structures of 14 real animals.
Actual x-rays can be matched to highly detailed color photographs of each animal. X-rays have been computer-enhanced to show the animal's body outline surrounding the skeleton, allowing young children to more readily recognize the animal.
Many possible uses in the classroom — compare individual animals, identify common traits and differences, or sort into vertebrate classes.
