Shoulder musculoskeletal anatomy by Fidencio Cuevas



Students will be able to describe and identify the musculoskeletal anatomy of the shoulder using Anatomy in Clay by Zahourek systems ( This is a lesson in which students will construct muscles out of terra cota clay and place them on a 2 ft. tall skeletal model. By the time this lesson will be delivered, I would have already introduced basic concepts and terminology using the Anatomy in Clay method in the Human Anatomy and Terminology unit located in this model. Students also take notes which include the Origin, Insertion and Action of the muslce in their interactive notebooks as described in the Introduction to Human Anatomy and Terminology in this model. Upon introducing a new body part we begin with a short video clip and then proceed to the muscle building followed by closing activity.
