In this lesson, learners will review or be introduced to vocabulary for parts of the body. They will sing a song about parts of the body and extend their language through inventing a skeleton. Finally, they will complete a project on having a healthy lifestyle.


To develop and practise:

  • vocabulary: words for parts of the body
  • structure: 'have got' for parts of the body, 'can' for actions, 'should' and 'shouldn't'
  • curricular work: healthy lifestyle
  • integrated skills: listening, speaking, reading, writing
