  1. Very cool! We’ll start anatomy in January so I am looking these up. I can’t get the brain hats or Ellejmchenry links to work! WOuld love to know how to find those.

  2. The brain hats are on a website called

    http://ellenjmchenry.com/

    Unfortunately it looks like her website is down for the moment, but it’s a large site and I’m sure she’ll have it up when she can. She has LOTS of other helpful resources too, so hopefully it’ll be up soon!

    In the meantime, I found another useful brain hat printable here, not the same but still pretty fun.
