Making and Using a Gel Person to Teach Human Anatomy
High schoolers 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.
