View villi in a new way!
Our colourful model shows the details of how villi absorb nutrients in the small intestine.
Students make their villus using the colourful parts working alone or in small groups. They use their model to identify the structure of the villus including the epithelial cells, capillary network, lacteal and goblet cells.
They can then consider how the specialised structure helps nutrient absorption. Goes well with our Digestive System model.
It can be printed in colour, or in mono on coloured or white paper.
