Type

Flipchart

 

Description

The concept and characters for this flipchart were developed from work produced by people at Sacred Heart School, Beagle Bay, WA in 2001 and 2002. Those involved included the upper primary school students, their teachers and Aboriginal support staff.

The flipchart is brightly coloured with simple diagrams representing the passage of food through the body and the role of insulin. Insulin is depicted as a superhero figure with a key to unlock the passage of the sugar moelcules to the cells.
