Activity 5A: Flipbook

After sequencing illustrations of bone tissue depicting gradual loss of connectivity (or "bridging"), students will construct a "flipbook" which "animates" this erosion of bone mass as osteoporosis progresses. The flipbook promotes consideration of how microchanges in "connectivity" or "bridging" result increased bone mass loss.
