Anatomy and Physiology students build bendaroos brain and playdough heart for classroom activity!


The brain is made out of Bendaroos.  The purpose was for
hands-on learning about brain structure; namely, the different lobes of brain
tissue, and the membranes (meninges) of the brain.  After listening to a
PowerPoint about major brain structures, then we also did a diagram together.
Then, it was fun to see the students get creative with the Bendaroos.

The “Playdough” heart shows the major chambers and blood
vessels of the heart-not in the colors of our own body of course.  We also
had plastic models of the heart to look at and an upper body model to see how
big the heart is in proportion to other parts of the body such as the lungs.

Great hands-on learning with a little fun for our students…way to keep it creative in the classroom, Lori Kleinschmidt (Adjunct Instructor for MA)!
