Parts of the Body Worksheets
There are so many fun things to teach children about their bodies. Here are a few engaging ideas that will help you teach your kids about their bodies, what their body parts do, dressing their body parts, and more.
Human Body Movies for Kids
I love to incorporate movies and videos into our unit studies whenever possible. They’re perfect for sick days or rainy days. Here are a few ideas for kids:
- The Magic School Bus: Human Body
- Human Body DVD by Rock’n Learn
- Elmo’s World – Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes
Books About the Human Body
In addition to movies, I love to include a wide variety of books in my lessons. I use some for read-alouds and save others for independent reading (when appropriate).
Below, I’m sharing a few of my favorite nonfiction books about the human body. I find they’re perfect for introducing the body parts, increasing vocabulary, and illustrating important information.
- Me and My Amazing Body
- My First Human Body Book
- First Body Book
- Inside Your Outside: All About the Human Body
Human Body Activities
Young learners love hands-on activities, and they help little ones engage with the topic at hand.
When studying the human body, you can add one or more of these activities to your to-do list:
• This fun dice game encourages kids to identify and move various body parts.
• How about a fun body parts matching game!
• Sing “head, shoulders, knees, and toes” for a fun interactive way to get kids moving while pointing out body parts.

Anchor charts are designed to highlight the most important parts of a lesson.

Parts of the Body
Children will identify the featured body parts and color the name of that body part.

Children will use counting blocks or snap cubes to measure their body parts. They’ll measure their hand, ear, nose, mouth, head, and arm.
