Landmarks on the Human Body

Landmarks on the Human Body

Author: Jim Pappas

Students will be able to IDENTIFY areas on the human form by referring to their LANDMARK name.

Landmarks on the body are areas where the bone is at the surface. The landmarks are used to find forms and to measure proportion. With the help of our new 3D skeleton friend, in this episode Stan will help us learn all the important landmarks of the body.

Be sure to print this week's handout for our upcoming drawing test!
