Tasks C17-18, G9 - Body Parts

Visit for several body part identification activities.

Play "Hokey Pokey"

Sing My Fingers Are Starting To Wiggle
(Tune: The Bear Went Over the Mountain)
My fingers are starting to wiggle,
My fingers are starting to wiggle,
My fingers are starting to wiggle,
Wiggle all around. (substitute other body parts)

Play with a Mr. Potato Head - see:

1. Play the “Touch Your Nose” game by having the students imitate the teacher’s actions. It may be easier for them to identify the teacher’s nose at first, rather than their own. Use a mirror to play “Touch Your Nose”. Have students find their noses and point to them in the mirror. Continue with other body parts.
2, Provide students with the outline of a face and pictures of the major facial parts (i.e., eyes, nose, mouth, ears). Instruct students to choose and place each picture appropriate on the face.
4. Play “Simon Says” with directions to touch specific body parts.
5. Use a full length mirror to explore body parts and their position on the body in relationship to another body part, (e.g., which is closer to the neck, fingers or toes?).
6. Have students lie down on the floor that has been covered with large sheets of paper. Trace students’ bodies and have them show body parts as requested on their own bodies and on the paper bodies. (source for the above ideas unknown... if you know, add a Comment)
