Students investigate organs, anatomical planes and transverse sections of the human body using gel people. In this human anatomy lesson plan, students use gel molds, gel and food items to make models of the human body. They create a scanning image of the gel body, they make transverse cuts, and they identify anatomical planes. They answer 6 questions about the organs of the human body, the planes and directions and the transverse cut.
If the only support you are in search of is lists of vocabulary terms, this presentation may fit the bill. Slides simply list terminology. These categories are included: hierarchy of structural organization, cell functions, cell membrane, cytoplasm, organelles, cell reproduction, and cell cycle stages.
