    Collaborative Study Activities

    These activities are designed for student groups of 2-4. Larger groups will work better when there is no supplemental instructor present in the laboratory to assist in testing student groups on each section.

    Head and Neck Muscles

    1. Identify the following structures on classroom anatomical models and/or unlabeled images/diagrams made available by your instructor. Work with your group to identify each structure and check them off the list once you have identified them.

    ⎕ platysma

    ⎕ masseter

    ⎕ sternocleidomastoid

    ⎕ trapezius

    ⎕ temporalis

    ⎕ sternohyoid

    ⎕ mylohyoid

    ⎕ orbicularis oculi

    ⎕ orbicularis oris

    ⎕ frontal belly of epicranius

    ⎕ occipital belly of epicranius

    ⎕ aponeurosis of epicranius

    ⎕ sternothyroid

    ⎕ zygomaticus major

    ⎕ zygomaticus minor

    ⎕ risorius

    ⎕ mentalis

    ⎕ nasalis

    ⎕ digastric

    2. Test your group members by asking them to name each structure you point to. Check off each when your group can successfully name each. Your group will also test you.
