Blood Vessel Map Assignment by keralaguest


									         Blood Vessel Map Assignment
To learn the Anatomical location of the major arteries and veins of the human body

Each group will get be drawing 2 diagrams: a map of the major arteries, and a map of the major veins. You will
start by tracing the outline of one of your group members onto two pieces of butcher paper. I would do this in
pencil first because neatness counts! Your group will be responsible for mapping and correctly labeling the
name and function of ALL of the blood vessels listed.

      2 pieces of large butcher paper
      Red Markers (used to draw arteries)
      Blue Markers (used to draw veins)
      Black Markers (used to label veins and arteries and outline the body)
      Green Markers (used to label the location that is served by each artery/vein)

      Work in groups of 3-4
      Collect your materials from the front of the room
      Trace the outline of one group member’s body onto BOTH sheets of butcher paper in pencil first!
      Once you are happy with your outline, go over the body in black marker
      Write the names and class period of each group member on the back of both of your maps
      Title your maps at the top as “Major Arteries of the Human Body” and “Major Veins of the Human
      Using your notes, figure 19.21 on page 725, and figure 19.26 on page 737 of your textbook, map the
       major arteries and veins listed in the table on the back of this sheet
      Label each vessel with black marker
      Near the label, write the region of the body served by the artery/vein in green marker
      Make sure all labels and functions are legible!
