Science Saturday with Real-Life X-Rays, Best & Most Linky, & Upcoming TPT Sale

As you can see from the title, I have several things to share with you today!  Let's get started.

First, I recently had the opportunity to review a wonderful product from SmileMakers, who has been helping teachers to create smiles for over 35 years.  The company is based out of Spartanburg, South Carolina.

Real human x-rays printed onto heavy duty plastic sheets. Arrange the pieces together to crate a full scale skeleton. Use the individual pieces to examine all the bones in the body. Measures up to 14 x 11 in size. Includes 18 pieces.

I was super excited when these came in the mail.  Shipping was very, very quick which is always great!

Here are a few more pictures of the contents.
Vocabulary cards to match with pictures.
Informational sheet
Work sheet to copy for your students with its own answer key.

You get ALL these x-rays!  I left the white backing paper behind these to get a better picture.

Hand x-ray held up to light.  I would SO LOVED to have had these available to me when I was a student.  High-quality, real-life pictures.

How awesome will it be to use these in the classroom?  Add this to the classroom skeleton and you have another wonderful manipulative to help bring life science to life!

Next, I'm joining in a fun linky with Christina at Bunting, Books, and Bainbridge.

Remember those categories in high school like Most Likely to Become President?  Well, Christina has modeled her linky around that same idea.  Too cute!

Here's my 'yearbook page.'

Here are the links to the above products:

Lastly, if you've been around the blog and TPT scene for a while, you know there is always a huge Back-to-School Sale.  That time has finally come for this school year.

The sale will be this Sunday and Monday, August 18th and 19th.
