Using Clay in Science Class

By: Kristen Snider

"The mind cannot forget what the hands have learned." It's true! When a students learn a new concept through their hands, they will never forget. As a student, I always remember the material I have learned through experiments and hands-on activities. The concepts stay fresh in students' minds when they learn them in fun and unique ways! Anatomy in Clay Learning System presented a new way to learn about anatomy, biology, and health sciences at Booth 604 in the Exhibit Hall. Teachers can purchase custom packages based on what they're searching for, such as colored clay, tools, and a learning activities guide. Some models of the human body give more detailed representations, while others offer basic representations of body systems. Teachers should want to present different and fun hands-on activities that offer students a better understanding of science concepts. Anatomy in Clay is the way to do it!
