I think it is important for everyone – adults and children alike – to have an understanding of how the human body works. When we have insight into how our bodies work, we are better prepared to care for our bodies so they can last us a lifetime.
And I don’t know about you, but when I think about the utter complexity of the human body, it inspires in me a sense of wonder and marvel. Science has come a long way toward understanding how our bodies work, but I suspect there are still more things we don’t know about how our bodies work than things we do know. 🙂
As part of my efforts to support children’s knowledge and understanding of their bodies, I have developed a set of Internal Organs of the Human Body 3-Part Cards. (These cards are included in my Human Body Printables Bundle.)
These Montessori-style nomenclature cards can be used to help children learn to identify key organs in their bodies.
My Internal Organs of the Human Body 3-part cards include the following 16 images:
- Small intestine
For each organ, there is a picture and label card, a picture-only card, and a label-only card.
In addition, for every organ I have included two different description cards.
The first description card includes the name of the organ so that children can read and learn more about the function of each organ and its location in the body.
The second description card omits the organ name so your child can be challenged to match the organ description to the name or picture of the organ.
I recommend pairing these cards with the Squishy Human Body from SmartLab Toys. Encourage your child to match the organs from the toy with the organs on each card.
