Teaching kids about body parts
Our bodies are amazing things! First of all, we all have them and use them in everything that we do. We use them to run, to eat, to sleep, to draw and to think. They are with us all of the time! We have many different body parts, and each of these body parts all have a different job. Because we spend all of our time with our bodies, it is very interesting to learn about all of the different body parts and what they help us to do.
Today we are going to look at three body parts, which are all on our head or face!
The first body parts that we are going to explore are our eyes! We all have two eyes, they are in our head, and they come in all kinds of different sizes and colours. Even though we all have different looking eyes, they all have the same job: The sense that our eyes control, is seeing!
Our eyes are made up of different parts and now we will talk a little bit about them.
The little dark circle in the centre of each of your eyes lets light in. It is called a pupil. Once the light goes in, it hits a part inside at the back of your eye that is very sensitive to light. This part is called the retina. When light touches the retina, it makes an upside-down picture of whatever you are looking at. A large nerve called the optic nerve carries the image to your brain where it gets turned around so that you see it the right way instead of upside-down
Another thing that our eyes do is cry. When we are very sad or happy our eyes release a special type of water that we call tears, nobody likes to cry though! Our eyes also make tears that clean our eyes and keep our eyes safe.
Eyes also help when we sleep, we can close our eyes so that we cannot see anything, again protecting these precious things that help us enjoy so much of the world.
Ears are another body part that we all have two of and they are located on the sides of our head. Again, every body has different shaped ears, which is very interesting. Our ears control our hearing sense!
Our ears are also made up of different parts; lets take a little look at these different parts and how they help us hear.
Eardrum: this is the part of the ear that catches tiny vibrations that we call sound, and changes them so that we can hear them properly.
Cochlea: This picks up lots of different sounds and organizes them into energy that we can understand better.
Auditory nerve: this takes the sounds that we have organized and sends them to our brain.
Everybody has one nose and you can see our noses right in the middle of our face! Our nose helps us smell, it lets us know when something smells really nice and when something smells really bad! They are also very important in helping us to breathe.
Lets have a look at the different parts of our nose and how these help us smell:
The nose has two holes called nostrils. A wall called the septum separates the nostrils and the nasal passages. Deep inside your nose, close to your skull, your septum is made of very thin pieces of bone.
Closer to the tip of your nose, the septum is made of cartilage which is flexible material that’s firmer than skin or muscle. It’s not as hard as bone, and if you push on the tip of your nose, you can feel how wiggly it is.
Behind your nose, in the middle of your face, is a space called the nasal cavity, which connects with the back of the throat. The nasal cavity is separated from the inside of your mouth by the palate (roof of your mouth).
Tips on teaching children
Young children get easily bored. Therefore it is important to bring in lots of props and toys to demonstrate the things you are trying to teach them This will avoid them getting bored, keep them engaged as they get excited about the new things they have learnt and ultimately, they will learn quicker and retain the information for longer. Also, try to ask them lots of questions. This will boost their self-confidence as they get things right as well as keeping them engaged in the material and learn quicker. Also try to keep things simple and do not overload them with information, children pick up new knowledge very quickly but if you put too much in one lesson, they will get bored and their self-confidence will drop.
