Teaching the parts of the body has numerous benefits. Schools usually introduce the body parts as a basic lesson so that a child is more aware of his own body at the preschool and first grade level. They also do it to increase a child’s vocabulary. Aside from these, children are better able to express things about their body, like, they would be able to say, ‘my ankle hurts’ instead of ‘my foot hurts’.

At the very simplest level, this activity can be used to identify and remember the different parts of the body. It can be slightly modified for an older child to start learning the spellings of the different parts of the body. If you think your child is ready, you can get your child to recognize some of these words as ‘sight words’.
