Vocabulary for the Body

What It’s For

When I first started teaching, I was amazed how many of my students had trouble remembering and using vocabulary about the body. In addition to using this just to learn the parts of the body, I often use it as a wonderful first lesson in a series about health.

 

What It Contains

This document provides a comprehensive list of the parts of the body. This 1-page sheet has simple vocabulary, like: “arm,” “leg,” “head,” and “ankle”. On top of that, it has┬ámore complex vocabulary, like: “ribcage,” “pinky,” “eyelashes,” and “jawbone”. I have sorted everything by topic.
