Body Parts

Body Parts Lesson 4: Skeleton Mobile

Lesson 4: Skeleton Mobile!

New Words: Hip, leg, knee, ankles, feet, toe, head
Preparation: Flashcards, A4 photocopy of a skeleton (one per student), string (5 pieces per student, each 4-5 cms long) glue (one stick per 3 students), scissors (one pair per student), Song – Heads, shoulders, knees and toes.
Time: About an hour, depending on class size.
Notes: It’s a good idea to make a skeleton mobile before class, so that you can scare the students!

Warmer: Song – Heads, shoulders, knees and toes. 5 minutes.

Review – upside down game. 5 minutes.

Introduce and drill the new words using your own body parts. It’s more or less just filling in the blanks. You could even draw a person on the board and elicit the words that way. Be sure to use adjectives like big, small, long, short and colours. 10 minutes.

Follow-up with a game of teacher says. 10 minutes

Make a skeleton mobile
You should make it in front of the class and demonstrate as-you-go.
1.    Cut off the head, arms and legs. Make sure you cut a long (about 18 cms), wide (10cms) piece of paper.
2.    Fold this piece of paper (width-ways) two or three times, so that you have a long, skinny and strong piece of paper.
3.    Save the off-cut pieces of paper, as we’ll need those for later.
4.    Glue a piece of string to the head, arms and legs (on the back).
5.    Now is where that scrap paper comes in handy. Rip of a small section and glue it over the string. You should end up with a sandwich between the piece of paper and the body part, with the string in the middle. This helps to make the mobile stronger.
6.    Now, glue the bits of string to the skeleton, in the correct place! Again, add the strengthening sandwich paper.
7.    Now get that long, skinny piece of paper and glue it to the back of the head. Add a sandwich support.
8.    Bend the long piece of paper, so that it is 90 degrees (or so, just as long as there is a bend) to the head.
9.    Scare the students!
10.    Get them to make their own.

This will take a while; don’t be surprised if it takes up to 30 minutes.
