K-1: The Senses
Give each student a sheet of construction paper and a set of Body Puzzle parts (or give each student a copy of the “Body Puzzle” page and let students cut out the parts for themselves). Explain that each student will assemble a set of body parts. Students may work in pairs to place body parts in the correct locations on the construction paper.
Check students’ work. When all students have built their models, give each student a brain cutout to place on his or her body puzzle (in the head).
