Mat Man (above) helps children identify and visualize the parts of their bodies in space.  We can build him with the wood pieces (and a few little extras).  Children's drawings of people improve right away! (See the before and after?  That was before and after the Mat Man lesson!)  Click on Mat Man to see his video on YouTube.
