To help students better understand the concept of anatomic planes when used in diagnostic imaging, I like to use a hands-on activity in my face-to-face medical terminology classes. The following video gives instructors an example of how a manipulative, such as play dough, can be used to involve all students in a kinesthetic learning activity.
Gather these tools and try this in YOUR classroom.
- Exploring Medical Language 10e, Chapter 3 or Basic Medical Language 5e, Lesson 2
- Handful of play dough for each student
- Plastic knife
