  • A list of words is provided below that you are expected to identify, learn, and label on the models provided. Note that not all models will have some of the organs/structures, so be sure to find them on an alternate model. You must use all the words provided. Using the colored tape provided, write the number that corresponds to the organ/structure and place them on your model. When complete, notify your TA so they may check your work.

    For each additional station, directions will be provided for the activity.

     

    Station One: Skull

    Label the models of this station with the number that corresponds to the appropriate structure of the peripheral nervous system using the colored tape. When you are finished, ask your TA to check your labeling. Before leaving the station, remove all the labels you have placed on the model.

    Note: For the following structures, be able to differentiate between left and right halves when applicable.

    Station Three: Limb Assembly

    In this station, you will be given a bucket filled with random bones some of which you will use to assemble an arm and a leg. Note below which bucket you are working with. Your assignment is to lay out the bones of each limb in their correct positions relative to each other and determine which bones do not belong to either limb.  Additionally, you will need to determine whether each limb is a right or left limb; circle your results below. When you are finished, ask your TA to check whether you have assembled and identified your limbs correctly.

    Bucket # ________

    Upper limb: Left / Right

    Lower limb: Left / Right

     

    Station 4: Histology

    Sketch the slides available for today’s lab and specify the magnitude at which you are observing/ sketching. Be sure to identify and label your sketch with the corresponding structures listed beneath each slide.

     

    Station Five: Upper Limbs

    Label the models of this station with the number that corresponds to the appropriate structure of the peripheral nervous system using the colored tape. When you are finished, ask your TA to check your labeling. Before leaving the station, remove all the labels you have placed on the model.
