Teaching Vocabulary: Body Parts Activity
O Students will be able to use and determine body parts in English.
1. As a warm-up, review body parts using a poster/picture, or simply point to yourself or to one of the students.
2. After making sure students are familiar with body parts, have the description of some of the body parts typed/written on a card or a piece of paper.
3. Divide students into groups/pairs. Tell every group that they will have a card with a body part description, and they are required to work together and guess the word. Example:
"It's in front of the eye" = "eyelashes"
"It's between your neck and abdomen" = "chest"
"It's in the center of the iris" = "pupil"
"It's between your eyebrows and hair" = "forehead"
"It's between your wrist and fingers" = "palm"
"It's in the middle of your finger" = "knuckle"
"It's inside the jaw" = "tongue"
"It's between your hip and knee" = "thigh"
"It's between your hand and your arm" = "wrist"
"It's between your neck and arm" = "shoulder"
4. After they are done, tell them to share with the class.
