Informational Chunk: book on body

At my practicum, I found a book that I think is excellent for presenting the human body to students. It is called Human Body- Your Body and How it Works. It has pictures and detailed descriptions of how your body parts work. It is broken into sections starting with the head and going to the feet. The pictures and text are easily understandable.

Bruun, Ruth & Bertel, M.D. (1982) Human Body- Your Body and How it Works. NY: Random House.

Insights:

As I said above, this book is excellent for presenting the human body to students. There are many pictures, which makes it very effective for hearing impaired students. It is easily understandable, and clearly presented. The organization of this book is also effective, because they go through the body in order (head to feet). I would definitely recommend this for use in a hearing impaired classroom. The complexity of this subject is simplified more so students at many different levels can understand the material.

Questions:

What are some other effective materials for presenting the human body to students?
