When you have to teach about the human body, there’s a lot of new vocabulary that has to be taught first. These preschool human body printables with the 3-part cards are great for teaching new vocabulary words. These human body worksheets are a great aid to your student as they learn about the body because all of the material is in front of them.
My daughter is always asking me about what is happening to her food after she eats it. I know that kids always find the end destination of food in our bodies hilarious. When we studied muscles, I think the best take away my son had was his new favorite word, gluteus maximus, in case you didn’t know, that’s butt.
You can cut up the cards and remove the words and then have your child try to match them up. These printables focus on the major organs of the body: the brain, heart, lungs, liver, kidneys, stomach, small and large intestines.
Preschool Human Body Printables
- 4 pages of 3-part cards for vocabulary
- 2 pages of a male and female
- 1 page of organs
The organs can be cut out and then placed onto the body so your child can get a sense of where the organs should go in the body. It’s not to scale but it’s a fun puzzle for your child to try to solve. The small intestines graphic isn’t as accurate as I’d like, it should consist of a set of tubes winding around each other. If it was stretched out, it would 5 feet or 1.5 meters long.
This includes an answer key but the kidneys are difficult to see, they are positioned in the back relative to all of the other organs.
