Parts of the Body in Spanish

There are so many things you can do when teaching the parts of the body in Spanish.  A lot of people play Simon Dice (Simon says) but check out this Spanish lesson plan that reviews the body parts using a student created monster.

Last week I mentioned this site for high school Spanish lesson plans or elementary Spanish lesson plans .  You can read and print the lesson plans for Spanish Class for free.

Mi Cuerpo would be a great book to read to introduce students to this vocabulary.


Hooked on Spanish seems like a pretty inexpensive option for teaching young kids Spanish.  It has an average of 4 star reviews.

Do you know of some great resources for Spanish Class Lesson Plans?  Leave your ideas in the comment section.

Thanks for this post. The game sounds fun and I will certainly try it. I've also found that students like the online activities designed for native Spanish to learn body parts. I wrote a post about games that the Spanish Ministry of Education has on their educational technology website here Online activities for body parts
I love your blog. It is always good for new ideas!
