The above statement is something I have found very true this last week while I have been trying to memorize all 206 bones in the adult body. Thankfully I’m not aspiring to be a pediatric doctor, or there would be even more to memorize!
Ever since I was little I have learned kinesthetically, meaning that touching and doing something sticks in my head more than reading or hearing it. In consequence, all morning I have been spinning around on the floor touching each bone in order and saying its name and then checking my book to make sure I was right. Amazingly, it really works; I can now tell you the names and numbers of each bone in your body! Bruce Springsteen really helps me keep rhythm while doing this. Lets just hope the same tactic works next week for muscles. =)By the way, I also have a skinned knee because of this... Oh the pains we endure for higher education.
