The entire human body as an intricate puzzle!

Description

All of these puzzles can fit together into a ten-foot-tall model of the entire human body.

In the first volume of Dr. Livingston's Anatomy Jigsaw Puzzles, you'll assemble a cross-cut section that gives you a clear view of the components of the head and neck. You'll see how they interlock and overlap with marvelous complexity. Piece together the brain, and the thick, bony skull which protects the brain, and the jaw and teeth. You'll assemble one eye and the muscles that support and move it. As you build the neck, you'll marvel at how it serves as an information superhighway - protecting the spinal cord, a concourse of blood vessels and nerves, and housing the esophagus, larynx, trachea, and thyroid gland. Complete the puzzle by fitting in the muscles of the neck which support and move the heavy head. 538 piece puzzle. Approx. 23 x 18 inches when fully assembled.

In the second volume of Dr. Livingston's Anatomy Jigsaw Puzzles, you will assemble a cross-cut section of the human body that gives you a clear view of the thorax, which is the entire rib cage and its contents. You'll see how they interlock and overlap with marvelous intricacy. As you assemble this puzzle, you'll frame the organs with crosscuts 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 is the four-chambered heart, which pumps blood through the pulmonary circulatory loop of the lungs. From there, once the blood is rich with fresh oxygen, it begins its journey through the systemic circulatory system to carry that oxygen to the rest of the body. 577 piece puzzle. Approx. 21 x 20 inches when fully assembled.

In the third volume of Dr. Livingston's Anatomy Jigsaw Puzzles, you will assemble a cross-cut section of the human body that gives you a clear view of abdomen, which is the largest cavity in the body and its major contents. You'll see how they interlock and overlap with marvelous economy. Piece together the frame of the puzzle and you'll see how the vital organs are suspended in the abdominal cavity by loose connective tissue called mesentery, a substance that contains blood vessels and nerves, and which also allows the organs to move as necessary. Fill out the abdominal cavity by assembling the body's lower digestive tract including the stomach, small and large intestines, and the supportive pancreas, liver, and gallbladder, each an impressive machine in its own right. 500 piece puzzle. Approx. 25 x 23 inches when fully assembled.

Focusing on musculature, the right arm puzzle shows how each muscle and tendon relates to the next. Together, this soft tissue enables us to flex and extend our upper limbs, push and pull, and precisely guide what we grasp. The triceps allow us to straighten our arms at the elbow; the biceps and brachioradialis allow us to bend them. The forearm muscles provide rotation, flexion, and extension. A complex network of nerves, arteries, and veins are interwoven, constantly repairing our muscles and collecting information about our environment. When finished assembling these exquisite pieces, you will be in awe of your accomplishment and your body's complexity. Approx. 53 x 11 inches when fully assembled.

Focusing on the skeletal structure, the left arm puzzle shows how the humerus, ulna, and radius bones are oriented. See the contours of the shoulder's ball-and-socket joint down to the fingers' many hinge joints. The carpal and metacarpal bones provide us amazing manual dexterity and pincer grip. Veins and arteries are interwoven, carrying vital oxygenated blood and removing deoxygenated blood. When finished assembling these exquisite pieces, you will be in awe of your accomplishment and your body's complexity. Approx. 53 x 11 inches when fully assembled.

Focusing on musculature, the right leg puzzle shows how each muscle and tendon relates to the next. Together, this soft tissue enables locomotion. Hip and thigh muscles provide lateral movement, rotation, and flexion, allowing us to crawl and overcome hurdles; calf and ankle muscles provide extension and flexion, allowing us to spring off the ground and land upright on uneven terrain. A complex network of nerves, arteries, and veins are interwoven, constantly repairing our muscles and collecting information about our environment. When finished assembling these exquisite pieces, you will be in awe of your accomplishment and your body's complexity. Approx. 66 x 13 inches when fully assembled.

Focusing on the skeletal structure, the left leg puzzle shows how the basal, intermediate, and distal segments are oriented. See the many joints that enable us to flex and extend our lower limbs to be bipedal. The pelvis meets the femur, giving way to the patella, tibia, and fibula for an optimal blend of rigidity and flexibility. Various, delicate tarsals, metatarsals, and phalanges allow us to maintain our balance. Veins and arteries are interwoven, carrying vital oxygenated blood and removing deoxygenated blood. When finished assembling these exquisite pieces, you will be in awe of your accomplishment and your body's complexity. Approx. 66 x 13 inches when fully assembled.

I put together the head, thoracic, and abdominal puzzles last summer, glued it, and hung it on the wall of my health science classroom. The students love it. I am so excited that I can finally get the rest of the puzzles and complete the body. It is big, but great for teaching.

Great Anatomy Puzzle

This is a wonderful high quality puzzle! The pieces fit together nicely and have s smooth matte finish. Colors are sharp and image is clear. I teach anatomy and all the structures are correct. It is not as easy as it looks! There are some odd shapes and the colors are challenging! I am going to glue it and hang it in the hallway at school. This would also be a fun class project though too. A good way to use up the last 10 minutes of class. I teach college, so extra time is never a problem, but my two non-science teenagers loved sitting with me to put it together. It would work in some high school classes.
