Joints, Picture of skeleton – optional.

Hands

Today I want to talk about a wonderful part of our bodies that can be very soft or very hard, very gentle or very powerful, very clever and able.

Hair 2: Numbered

Today, you and I all brought something with us that is very pretty. It is long and thin, comes in different colors and can’t move by itself but it is always moving. What is it?

Hair 1: Beauty

Today we are going to talk about a part of our body that is most unusual. We can bend it any way we want to. We can make it look different every day. We can pinch it and it doesn’t hurt. But if someone pulls it, we feel pain. What is it? . . . → Read More: Hair 1: Beauty

Raise your hand if you know what is making the noise you hear. (Make a noise with one of the objects. Let the first one who raised his or her hand name the object.

Bones (of chicken leg).
