Models vs meshes

A few of you know of a little educational project that I'm working on, documenting a lot of my knowledge.
Anyway, after writing a section on geometry, explaining what verts and edges and polys and tris and quads are, I came to part where I'm stuck. Sort of.
You know when we build a single continuous mesh, and then intersect it with other meshes? Like we build a human, then intersect the ammo pouchs, or put on the shoulder pads as a separate object?
What would you call those?
Are they meshes? Is it a model made up of meshes, or a meshes made from models, or a compund mesh? Or just a model with objects? Just looking for a few other folks views.
