Why "Parts of" 3-Part Cards Work
These cards teach external anatomy the way it was meant to be done. Using a mix of full-color and black-and-white
photography, each part of the whole is clearly isolated in its natural color while the rest of the subject recedes into the
background in muted shades of gray. Within each packet there is one photo that depicts each key external anatomical part for
that species. For example, in the turtle packet there is one card showing the entire turtle in full color and then one card for
each of its key parts where only that part of the photo is in full color (head, tympanum, eyes, nostrils, jaw, neck, carapace,
plastron, forelegs, hind legs, clawed feet, and tail).
READ THE LESSON PLAN...
Each reclosable packet includes control cards (3 2/3" x 4 1/3”), matching picture cards (3 2/3” x 3”), and word cards (3 2/3” x
1 1/8”) for each anatomical feature depicted. All cards have rounded corners (the number of cards varies per packet based on
the number of the subject's external characteristics). Click on a product photo (below) to see what's included. Laminated
cards are ready for use. See laminating recommendations if purchasing unlaminated cards. Eco-printed in the USA. When
presenting our cards to the children, we recommend displaying them in a decorative box, basket, or pouch like those pictured
(sold elsewhere). You can purchase lovely fabric pouches directly from Montessori Materials by Request or Handmade
Montessori. Tell them Maitri sent you!
