This ‘mini-medical school journey’ for kids offers a wondrous array of fun and exciting props and activities through which children explore the world of sports medicine, science, health and injury prevention. The workbook engages little doctors with activities that are as fun as they are enlightening: Learning how to treat an ankle sprain, learning the bones of the skeleton and hand, making models of different joints, performing simulated Tommy John Surgery, and both an introductory and graduation ceremony. My Little Sports Medicine Kit promotes social development, cooperation, teamwork, creativity and problem-solving, among other skills. For ages 6+.
What Makes it Hot Diggity Great:
Little Medical School's line of medical kits are so clever and combine imaginative play with education seamlessly. The company doesn't underestimate children's ability to learn about real medical procedures, anatomy and patient care and each kit lays everything out in a fun and innovative way. The doctor's coat is really well made, unlike many children's costumes on the market! Great for the older child (perhaps one who's broken a bone or two) with a detailed lesson in anatomy and bones. Nice introduction to other areas of medicine such as orthopedics and sports medicine.
