Please note: Rather than going into minute terms, only the most general terms have been listed for this level. Also, one picture card can sometimes be used to introduce multiple terms. e.g. body picture head, neck, shoulders, chest, stomach, etc. The body parts are: Head Face Eyes Ears Nose Body Neck Shoulders Arms Elbows Wrists Hands Chest Back Stomach Legs Knees Ankles Divide class into pairs. Distribute the laminated blank body diagram cards to one partner, the pile of laminated body part name cards (18 in total) to the other. Have one partner say the body part aloud and the other point to the correct corresponding number on the diagram. Switch roles once the entire pile has been completed. At the end of the activity, go over the diagram numbers which correspond with each body part. The correct body parts which correspond with the body diagram numbers are: 1. head 2. eye 3. nose 4. ear 5. mouth/lips 6. neck 7. shoulder 8. chest 9. arm/elbow 10. hand 11. stomach 12. back 13. leg 14. knee 15. ankle 16. foot IV Activity B Divide class into two teams. Have one person from each team come up and show them one of the body part pictures. Set a time limit during which they must draw the body part, having their teammates correctly guess it. Only one guess can be fielded from each team, so they must work together to come up with their one guess. The one-guess rule should be implemented to minimize students simply yelling body parts out until they guess the correct one. You can enforce this rule by deducting points for each wrong term called out, awarding only if the correct one is given.. V Closing Comments Sum up the focus language Indicate and correct mistake patterns made in class. Answer any outstanding questions. Wrap up.
