¡Felices Pascuas!

This is a fun way to teach or review the body parts vocabulary in Spanish. Instead of labeling each body part, students identify which body part is missing. You can do this as a class or play it as a game. You might have two volunteers stand and play against each other for bonus points—put the slide up and the first one to identify the body part gets a point. The teacher asks as he/she puts up each slide, “¿Qué le falta?” or “¿Qué le faltan?” (If it is plural). The students then say the vocabulary word(s). You may be a real stickler and make them say the correct definite/indefinite article with each, or go even further by making them respond in a complete sentence: “Le falta la boca.” 

You could also split the class into two teams and go up and down the rows, each person playing against someone on the opposite team.

You could set up several presentations mixing up the order of the slides so that you may play several times in one class period.

You could also print them onto transparencies or cardstock to play on an overhead or Elmo machine, making it easier to play in random order.

"Missing" Body Parts to be identified are:
las mejillas
el cuerpo 
el estómago
el ombligo
el pelo/el cabello
el pie (la pata)
el talón
la boca
la cabeza
la cara
la cola
la lengua
la nariz
las cejas
las manos
las muñecas
las orejas
las piernas
las rodillas
los brazos
los codos
los dedos
los dedos del pie
los dientes
los hombros
los labios
los ojos
los pies
los pulgares
los tobillos
nada (No le falta nada en ese dibujo.)

¡Felices Pascuas!
