Parts of the body

In this lesson, students will review or be introduced to vocabulary for parts of the body. They will either sing a song about parts of the body and extend their language through inventing a monster, or they can focus on internal parts of the body through a quiz, and practise describing people’s faces in detail. Finally, they can complete a project on how to have a healthy lifestyle.
