Teaching body parts in a different way

Posted by Laura under: Resources

We learned the “monster” activity in a workshop a couple of years ago, and we’ve been using it since then every time we have to explain “Las partes del cuerpo” or “body parts”. In this activity, the students have to draw a monster, using numbers that they picked at random at the beginning of the class, before we told them what we were going to do that day. Some of the monsters will have two, three or even six heads, and the same happens to the rest of the body parts we cover during the class. In addition to that, they’ll have to write a description of their monster, such as “Mi monstruo tiene una cabeza, cinco ojos, tres narices, cuatro bocas, dos orejas, seis cuerpos, dos brazos, dos manos, una pierna y tres pies”. It’s a great activity not only to learn or review body parts, but also to point out if they are masculine or feminine, and how to do the plural form of those words.

And don’t miss our icebreaker about body parts: Gente perfecta!!

Me gusta mucho esta idea, particularmente porque trabajos con chicos. Ya me imagino la clase de monstruos que dibujaran con esta actividad!
