Anatomy in Clay® is a program that increases knowledge of human anatomy by using a hands-on approach to learning in which students build anatomical features on to a model (or Maniken®). This approach allows students to build anatomical features from the inside out on scale-model skeletons that gives them a three-dimensional perspective of the human body. This increased perspective, along with the interactive, kinesthetic act of building with clay, increases student understanding and retention of human anatomy.

Potential settings for Anatomy in Clay® include the following:

  • Semester long anatomy courses covering all aspects of anatomy in high school to support Advanced Placement Anatomy and Physiology and Biology courses
  • On-going anatomy instruction for high school student support services that include explicit instruction in vocabulary, memorization, and systems level learning
  • Tutor/Study sessions for college, nursing, or other healthcare students as a review of content knowledge
  • Instruction for sports teams, dance teams, or Yoga Teacher Training programs
  • Middle School introductory sessions for pre-health career and science exposure
  • Instruction for youth programming to promote resiliency by demonstrating connections between the body and mental and physical health
  • Community classes for older adults to increase mobility, balance, and concentration
