Bones and Organs

  • CalendarAvailable on request
  • Clock outlineUp to 2 hours

A group of children participating in the bones and organ placement activity.

Our bones and organs activity aims to teach pupils about organ placement and function.

The activity is divided into two parts. The first part includes organ placement and the second part is related to size, using props to guess how long guts in the body are, how heavy brains are and how much skin covers the body in relation to a child’s body.

We are able to run the activity in a variety of locations. We are happy to come to your school, community event or speak to you about arranging a visit to Cardiff University.
