Re: Back to school anatomy: just add Plasticine

When I demonstrated anatomy I tried this technique to help me explain the components making up the larynx, which can be quite difficult to visualise.

Like you, I found the students really enjoyed making their own models and then working the components together. They found the exercise helped their understanding. Highly recommended!
