    We have to teach students to locate the brain, lungs, heart, muscles, and bones. Do any of you have a simple lesson idea or activity?

    What about creating those body part vests out of paper bags? I know there are ones you can buy and the parts are attached by velcro so you can take them on and off and put them where the go or whatever. I think I saw something about making it out of paper bags though as a vest for the kids to wear and design or something. I do not know, but I think that would be fun. Otherwise perhaps for bones you could do just a simple game touch your whatever bone and they have to touch where that bone is located- that could be a quick fun review.

    :thumb: The paperbag vests sounds like a great idea.

    You could also have the students cut out a basic person template like this and you could either -

    a) let the students draw the appropiate parts based on a teacher model

    b) go online like i did and find little clip art brain, heart, lungs, etc and have the students paste them to the person cut out and color.
