A Kinesthetic Activity Using LEGO Bricks and Buckets for Illustrating the Regulation of Blood Sugar
Urschler, Margaret; Meidl, Katherine; Browning, Samantha; Khan, Basima; Milanick, Mark
Advances in Physiology Education, v39 n3 p250-252 Sep 2015
This article describes how, when first faced with understanding blood sugar regulation, students often resort to simple memorization.Many students would like to get more involved with the conceptual framework but do not know how to start. The authors have developed an activity based on the Modell approach, a "view from the inside." This will help students understand blood sugar regulation using a kinesthetic approach, which complements the beaver pond analogy of Swain and the kinesthetic activity of Conway and Leonard.
