Head, shoulders, knees, and toes! Dive into our body parts vocabulary list to learn all about the human body in English in a fun way.


Today, we’re embarking on an exciting journey to discover the human body with Studycat! Imagine turning the act of learning into a playful exploration of ourselves. From head to toe, every part of our body has a story, a purpose, and a name.

This adventure will help your little ones become more aware of their bodies and learn how to express themselves when they’re talking about how they feel or what they can do.

Body parts vocabulary list

Our bodies are amazing! They let us run, jump, play, and explore the world. Learning the names of our body parts is like getting to know the best friend we’ll ever have: ourselves. Let’s get familiar with the parts that make us move, sense, and express:

The top part of your body, where your brain, eyes, ears, nose, and mouth are.
”I can nod my head yes or no.”


The strands that grow on your head.
”She brushed her hair until it shined.”


The part of your face that you use to smell and breathe.
”He has a red nose when he’s cold.”


You have two of these, and they let you see.
”Her eyes are bright blue.”


The part on each side of your head that you hear with.
”He wears a hat over his ears when it’s windy.”


The opening on your face where you eat, talk, and smile.
”She opened her mouth wide to show her teeth.”


Each of the two long parts of your body from the shoulder to the hand.
”He raised his arm to ask a question.”


The part at the end of your arm that has fingers.
”She held the pencil in her hand.”


You have ten of these on your hands, and you use them to hold things.
”He counted to five on his fingers.”


Each of the two long parts of your body that you stand on.
”She jumped on one leg in the game.”

The part of your leg that you stand and walk on. You have two feet.
”His foot left a print in the sand.”


The small parts at the end of your feet. You have ten toes.

Getting to know these parts of the body not only helps us describe ourselves but also helps us understand how we interact with the world. Studycat makes learning about our bodies an exciting adventure, filled with fun and discovery!

How to learn and remember body parts

Learning about body parts with our feline friends is all about making it a hands-on, interactive experience. Here are some activities to help:

  • Simon Says: Play a game of “Simon Says” focused on body parts. “Simon says, touch your nose.”
  • Body Part Twister: Create a Twister game with body part labels, encouraging kids to match hands and feet to the right spots.
  • Sing Body Parts Songs: There are many songs about body parts that can make learning them fun and easy to remember.
  • Drawing and Labeling: Have kids draw pictures of themselves or family members and label each body part.
  • Body Part Match: Use cards or stickers with body part names and pictures, and have children match them correctly.

As we wrap up our exploration of the body, remember that learning about ourselves is a fundamental step toward expressing our needs, feelings, and experiences. With Studycat’s playful and engaging approach, discovering the human body becomes an enriching journey of self-discovery and fun.
