What’s inside a lizard? Or a cat, bird, or even yourself? Imagine you have X-ray eyes. Show bright bones and opaque organs with Crayola® Color Switchers™ Markers.
X-rays were discovered in 1895 by Wilhelm Roentgen, a German physicist. He found that these rays could pass through many materials that absorb visible light, allowing us to see inside solid objects. For the first time, people could look at the inner workings of the human body, as well as other creatures’ bodies.
Aboriginal Australian people created many beautiful bark "X-ray" paintings of the inner parts of animals, using what they knew about the animal as inspiration. Have students study these paintings for ideas.
Students choose a favorite animal. Use Crayola Washable Markers to outline the creature on white paper.
Students use what they know about their animal’s anatomy and habits to help them. For instance, what does the animal eat? Does it live in water or on land? Imagine what the inner workings of the animal look like. You know that human beings have many organs that they need to survive, such as a heart, lungs, stomach, and liver. Does the animal have some parts that people don’t have? Place the organs in and around each other in the animal’s body.
When finished, students should research the animal’s anatomy to see if they drew the innards accurately.
