"Parts of the Body" Checklist
If you would like us to add an online worksheet for your language, simply send us
a list of the names of the 17 body parts depicted on this page. If your language uses different word forms for "my head," "your head," and so on, then
please use the first-person form ("my head") since that is the easiest form to teach kids to start with.
We can also host audio recordings of you saying the names, if you like.
The photographs we have used are stock images of acclaimed Native actors
Adam Beach and Irene Bedard. We believe
using pictures of contemporary Native celebrities makes this lesson more attractive to kids.
To the best of our knowledge these photographs are acceptable for educational public use.
Feel free to contact us with any feedback.
