How to Study the Skeletal System Easily
Anatomy and physiology students have a long list of bones to memorize, and despite this, it is the easiest parts of the body to learn because they are so accessible. Touching your bones is very possible despite the skin. If you simply memorize these bones, chances are you will forget them in a while, but not so if you attach meaning to the bones you are learning about. If you follow these creative suggestions below, learning about the human skeletal system would become very easy for you.
These ideas, however, are not meant to replace studying our textbook or attending class and paying attention to your teacher.
Below are some ideas to make your creative in studying.
One idea is to paint corresponding bones on a t-shirt or a pair of leggings. Painting your skin can be one adventure for you. Using an eyebrow pencil or any make up, you can mark your face to write the bones of the skull.
Another way of learning the bones is by painting it on each other and then taking pictures.
You can learn the bones names by making up rhymes and cute saying using their names.
“MY femur is horizontal when I’m a dreamer” is one such saying.
The mandible is for chewing and a saying can go, “MAN Did I blow a big bubBLE” Where the caps spell the bone.
The saying which goes ‘The fibula is on the side of the jibula’ gives as a clue as jib is on the side of the main sail, just like the fibula is on the side of the tibia.
The word ‘pair’ is contained in ‘parietal’ which are found in a pair. It ends with ‘tal’ since they are on the top of your head and is the tallest spot on your body.
The shape and what they are used for can be a clue to some bones in our body.
When raising your arms you use the wing like scapula.
Think of you skull as a cave where a bat lives; this bat looks like your sphenoid bone.
You can do animation when studying about bones. The script should be an argument among the bones on what to do next. If you make your bones tell us what they can do, we can pinpoint the places in their body. Reading, performing and recording your script is one way to do it.
Pasta can be used to picture different categories of bones. Penne pasta,macaroni, and broken lasagna can be used to designate long bones, sesamoid bones, and flat bones respectively. When you have gathered your pasta, paste them onto a human shaped board and then put the names of the bones on it.
