Teaching small children about their body parts - The neck and shoulders

2년 전

What should you teach pre-schoolers about their body parts?

Pre-schoolers should learn each body part and the function of that body part.

Last time we learnt about the head and the face as seen on the picture below.

Today we look at more body parts.

The neck

One might think that the neck is not so important but the neck as any other body part is very important. The neck carries the head and separates the head from the chest. The spinal cord starts in the neck.

Inside the neck there are many blood vessels and nerves, the larynx also called the voice box, which gave you your voice and the oesophagus which is also called the "food pipe" which helps you to swallow and takes the food to your stomach. You don't have to remember all the big names when you are bigger you will learn more about that.

Inside the neck, there is also a lot of muscles and the first vertebrae of your spine. The muscles in the neck help you to turn your head in every direction. It also helps you to look up and down. So you can see then that the neck is a very important part of your body. I bet you did not think so before we learn about this.

The shoulders

Your shoulders are just as important. Your arms come from your shoulders and allow your arms to move. Inside the shoulder are different bones. Below is a picture of all the bones and muscles that are in the shoulder. For now, you don't have to learn the names of all the bones and muscles inside the shoulder.


The picture is just so you can see what is inside the shoulder and you must just remember that your arm is attached to the shoulder and helps your arms to move.

Like everything in the body, every part is wonderful in how it works and the functions it does.

Thank you for reading and learning.

Welcome.

Great job, very useful for children and adults. Many times we are not aware of how important each of the body parts are.

Thank you for commenting!

I think pre-schoolers will be afraid if you teach them what are inside a neck or shoulder. The first and second picture are Ok.

Hi @doloreseyes, thank you for commenting. Yes, you maybe right but it's difficult to find a picture. I did not want to just put up a picture of the neck. Then maybe it will be difficult for them to imagine what is inside there. Believe me looking for a picture took me a very long time. Hopefully today children's see so much on the TV that they will be ok with that.
