(a learned memory through
building on a model),
which cannot be forgotten.
The Student Maniken!
Research has shown
that the greatest
learning intelligence

Individual Checkout!
• As if they were textbooks, Manikens will
be checked out to individual Human
Anatomy & Physiology students!
• …..a 3-DIMENSIONAL textbook!
Endless Anatomy-In-Clay
Maniken Applications!
• Students will write/draw on their Manikens!
• Students will assemble their Manikens!
• Students will study individual appendages!
• Students will learn systems simultaneously!
• Students will build additional anatomical
structures and physiologic processes in clay!
Maniken versus Dissection?
• Students take pride in their Manikens (from
“birth certificates” through “funeral day”)!
• Students will know precise locations of
muscle insertions and origins!
• Students will learn the critical
interdependence of all body systems!
• End of year culminates in an intensive
review of all material covered!
