Anatomical Language assignment

Use the anatomical terms suggested below in a short story entitles " A Day in the Life of an Anatomy Student". In order to receive maximum credit you must use them by referencing parts of the body. For example, "Her necklace hung down her back so the pendant was intermediate to her shoulder blades. " Underline all of the terms used in your story. If you do an injury or crime scene be appropriate. Each term is worth 1 point if used correctly. Maximum points are 20 points.

Pick another 20 terms and make flashcards (0.5 point/ea) for 10 points.
