Our bodies are wonderful machines and it is very normal for children to become curious about their bodies. As children learn best through experiences that involve the use of their senses, learning activity that involves using parts of their body and movements will help them understand about a topic easily.

Parents should include the topic of body parts in the children’s day-to-day life to learn from the very beginning. At Galaxy Kids, you will find English vocabulary to teach your kids about body parts and fun activities to help them get familiar with the subject.

Internal Parts of the Body

Last, but not least, the internal body parts are the ones that can’t be seen. However, these parts are in charge of essential body functions such as transporting the blood, sustaining the body, distributing the oxygen, and sending different signals to the brain.

English vocabulary about human body parts is really diverse. However, children are too young to learn all these words, so you just need to teach your child to get used to simple actions such as:

+ Nod your head
+ Shake your head
+ Turn your head to the right
+ Turn your head to the right
+ Put your hand up
+ Put your hand down
+ Cross your arms
+ Sit down
+ Stand up

Or simply just turn up this song for your kids to dance and sing along!

For older kids, parents can get creative and play many fun games with their kids such as Simon Says (“Simon says touch your elbow”, etc.) or pretend your fingers are an ant by “walking” your fingers to different parts of the body and ask your child to guess where the ant is (“An ant crawled up my ankle”).

Another way to get your little ones to learn this vocabulary is body parts printing flashcards and making picture dictionaries by punching a hole in the top left corner (punch hole dot provided). Hook them together with a metal binder ring.

We hope you will find these methods useful and exciting to motivate kids to learn English vocabulary as well as develop their knowledge of the surroundings.
