eSkeleton launcher

This is the launcher that provides detailed bone structure of different animals. Current New York City biology curricullum des not go into detail about human anatomy but I can use this in evolution lesson or anataomy and physiology for AP class. Students can select a bone from the list of four bone types on the skeletal image, and launch the bone viewer. The session that I really want to use in my lesson is comparision anatomy section. That section enables users to make direct comparisons of bones. Students can compare the bones of chimpanzee and human, or human with other animals and how human evolved. They can also determine some homologous and ananlogous body parts. Making detail observation would very helful to students to teach evolutionary evidence.
