Ms. Wong from Dorchester MA is requesting Lab Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Modeling Muscles With Skulls

My students need 10 human skulls in order to learn two anatomical organ systems, skeletal and muscular system. They will use clay to model muscle over the skull.

My Students

My students are English Language Learners in the Greater Boston area. Since they start their high school career as ELLs, they need an accelerated learning curriculum with a lot of kinesthetic learning opportunities in order to make every minute of their academic career count.

The diverse cultures of my classrooms has been an asset to the learning environment as my students are from Haiti, Somalia, Kenya, Vietnam, Cape Verde, Portugal, Brazil, El Salvador, Dominican Republic, or Honduras.

They are learning the content and culture together, and from each other.

My Project

Students are enthusiastic when they are learning about the human body and organ systems. However, the number of vocabulary words they need to learn diminishes their motivation and hinder any push to go into a STEM-related field. By modeling the muscular system using clay and the skull, it will make this learning opportunity unique and draw students into a STEM-related field.

The kinesthetic aspect of the lesson will allow students to remember their anatomy and physiology vividly and fondly because they will be learning using all of their senses instead of through text.

This lesson will reinforce the content they learn from a lecture.
