    names of body parts

    I'm looking for a simple drawing of a human figure that I can use to teach the names of body parts (head, arms, legs, etc.) to my ESL students. I've searched the Internet, but I can find nothing suitable.

    I thought it would be fun to play the game,"Simon Says," and have the students point to the head when Simon says, "Point to the head," etc.

    Have you come across such a drawing? Or do you have other suggestions for teaching the names of body parts?

    Many thanks!

    Would it be possible for you to draw the outline of a human body and ask your students to name the different parts ?

    All you have to do is search in Google "human body", in "Images".

    In lessons I gave once (to admittedly small classes) I invited a student to come to the front and draw a person.
