Have students divide a paper into 6 boxes and number them. Pass the socks around and have the students make a picture of what they think is inside from feeling them. Take out the objects and compare the drawings to the actual objects.
Though all components of the human body work differently, they still manage to work together. After this lesson students will understand this, as well as the basic functions of the body's main components. Discuss each of the facts with the students.
Allow the students to ask questions and locate the different body parts on a picture of the human body. Then use the learning activities to help the students gain a better understanding of the body parts discussed.
The Skin On average, each person has six pounds of skin. The skin prevents harmful bacteria from invading the body and it protects the organs. There are three layers of skin. The skin is flexible and can stretch and bend.
The skin feels cold, heat, pain, and wetness because it has nerves. The skin can heal itself when it is wounded. The skin will help to keep us warm when it's cold and cool when it's hot. The skin is waterproof. Have the students bend their elbows so they can see how skin is flexible.
Drop a little bit of water on the back of each students hand to show students that the skin is waterproof. Take a plastic shopping bag and fill it with six pounds of oranges. Allow each student to hold this bag so that they can get an idea of how much the total amount of our skin weighs.
Muscles The muscles control body movement. Some muscles move on their own and some muscles only move when we move them.
There are three different types of muscle. There are more than muscles in the body. Learning Activities Get some rubber bacon to show the students what the muscles look like.
Rubber bacon is about as close as you will get to what the muscles look like.
Using the rubber bacon, pull and stretch it to demonstrate how muscles move. Have children make a muscle with their arm.
Have them gently squeeze their arm with the opposite hand while they flex it so that they can feel their muscle flex. Bones The thigh bone is the largest bone in the body.
Babies have more than bones and adults have bones. The smallest bone is located in the ear and is called the stirrup bone. There are four different kinds of bones. The bones are what gives the body shape.the five senses and how they work This is an illustration of the brain highlighting the sensory areas: the somatosensory cortex (yellow), the visual cortex (pink), the auditory cortex (orange), the gustatory cortex (green) and the olfactory cortex (blue).
Sense of Sound. Five Senses Song Mary Jo W. suggest this song to reinforce learning about the senses and the corresponding body part.. Five Senses (Tune: Where is Thumbkin)Five senses, five senses We have them. We have them. Seeing, hearing, touching, Tasting and smelling.
While senses like hearing or touch are fully developed from the time a baby is born, it can take many months for senses like sight to develop fully. Learning when and how the 5 senses for infants develop can help you to learn how to stimulate them the most effectively.
The ways we understand and perceive the world around us as humans are known as senses. We have five traditional senses known as taste, smell, touch, hearing and sight.
The stimuli from each sensing organ in the body is relayed to different parts of the brain through various pathways.
Five Senses Theme Music and Movement Activities and Ideas to get your Preschoolers Movin' and Groovin'! Scarf Dancing Play different types of music and encourage the children to listen to the sound (fast, slow, etc.) and move to the music.
Their sense of touch won't work so they only notice this wound when they see it through their eyes. If these wounds go by unnoticed for a long time severe infection may occur leading to gangrene and finnaly the limb may be even amputated.
