For a long time I felt that I was missing a post on this site on parts of the body. But I wasn’t inspired enough to close this gap. Fortunately, a few days ago Jason Levine from FLUENCY MC published a wonderful video dealing with the relevant vocabulary. It got me started. This post is another result of a fruitful partnership between Engames and Fluency MC.
Engames and Fluency MC have cooperated on a number of posts in the past. Together we created four posts on irregular verbs based on Fluency MC’s popular video. We’ve also created posts on Collocations with the Verb HAVE, on the Gerund or Infinitive, and on Parts of Speech. And here comes the latest fruit of our cooperation – Parts of the Body.
In this post you will find the song, an infographic, a quiz and a game that will help you learn or teach the vocabulary.
Parts of the body – song
This is the wonderful song by Fluency MC. I recommend that you listen to it, then sing and perform it together with your students.
Parts of the body – Infographic
I was looking for a suitable picture for a long time, and I feel this one is perfect.
What to do with it? Print it and hand it out, then check that your students can pronounce the words correctly. Once you finish, ask them to cover the picture on the left and write the names of the body parts on the right. In this way they will practice all the parts.
If you want the picture in full HD you can download it below:
Parts of the body – Quiz
The following quiz will help your students practise the parts of the body. They can do it either at school or at home. The quiz consists of two parts. In the first part, students should match the pictures with the names of the body parts. In the second part, students have to click on the correct part of the body. The students will be rewarded with a game after each part of the quiz they pass. The quiz is in HTML5, so it will play on all desktops and mobile devices.
To get to the second part of the quiz, you have to click on the right next to the advert at the top during the game Angry Finches!!!
This game is in Flash and will play only on desktop computers. It is called On Target. Your task is to choose the correct option and then shoot all the bad frogs and ducks. You can shoot one of the bottles on the wall to get a bonus. Enjoy.
