5 Key Takeaways on the Road to Dominating Resources

Learning the Human Skeletal System

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. You can touch and break most of your bones. Memorizing something sometimes don’t last long but when meaning is attached to what you are learning, then you can easily retain them. Here are some creative suggestions that will help you learn about the different bones in our body.

However, you should not use these as a replacement for reading your text book or listening to your teacher.

But you can still be creative in studying them by following these ideas below.

One fun way you can learn about the skeletal system is to paint your t-shirt or leggings with bones that correspond to that parts. Painting your skin can be one adventure for you. One day you can even try, with the use of an eyebrow pencil or any make-up to write the bones of the skull on your face.

If you have a study group you can paint bones on each other and then take pictures and share it with the rest of the class.

You can learn the bones names by making up rhymes and cute saying using their names.

For example, my femur is horizontal when I’m a dreamer.

“MAN Did I blow a big bubBLE” where the capital letters spell mandible which is for chewing.

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.

When the word parietal is used, you find the word pair in it which signifies that there are a pair of them. This lies on the tallest spot of your body which is the head, so it ends in ‘tal.’

The shape and what they are used for can be a clue to some bones in our body.

For example a scapula looks a bit like a wing and is in fact involved in raising your arms.

You can associate your sphenoid bone with a bat that lives inside the cave of your skull.

You can do animation when studying about bones. The script should be an argument among the bones on what to do next. In the script the bones should tell what they do so you can remember where they are. Reading, performing and recording your script is one way to do it.

Using pasta for different categories of bones is also something you can use to as a learning tool. You can use penne pasta for long bones, macaroni for sesamoid bones, and broken lasagna for flat bones. When you have gathered your pasta, paste them onto a human shaped board and then put the names of the bones on it.
