Lesson Plan- body parts



Teaching the human body's parts can be fun and interesting for both teachers and students. Starting from a young age, many children are fascinated with the human body and high school graduates are required to know the body's complex organ systems. Thus, learning the parts of the body can be one of the first lessons for young English learners.
There are many ways to approach teaching the human body, hence it is necessary to design interactive and engaged  lesson plans to encourage students on several levels; namely, reinforcing the vocabulary through games, art, and physical activities by the means of technological resources. So the subsequent lesson plan entitled “The Parts of the Body ”pretends to develop and improve in the students (beginners) the four skills: reading, writing, listening, and speaking through a variety of activities in which they will enjoy their new found knowledge so much and they will start teaching body parts to anyone who will listen.
Finally, in my personal opinion I think I learnt a lot from this course because I had the possibility to realize that new technologies have opened up a whole new world of possibilities for all sorts of processes. Furthermore, the educational field cannot ignore the use of these new means and resources as possible sources of innovation and progress in teaching. Many useful and interesting tools through the use of technology were taught in the development of this course which served me a lot to in order to make the teaching-learning process superior and more attractive. In addition, ICT course enhanced instruction and fostered learning outcomes through the participation of people, machines, and processes in which the knowledge is creatively applied and involving.
