What Do I Look Like on the Inside? [microform] : Developing Children's Understanding about Their Bodies / Marilyn Fleer and Careen Leslie

This booklet discusses techniques and activities intended to help early childhood educators to explain the structure and function of the human body to preschool children. It reviews typical questions that preschoolers have about what goes on inside their bodies, observations that children make about the human body, how children draw the human body, and their understanding of the location and function of the internal organs. Questions, reactions, and observations by preschoolers are provided. The booklet also discusses what children typically want to learn about their bodies, as well as specific activities and instructional materials that can be used with preschoolers. It concludes by noting that the expansion of children's knowledge about the human body will give them a more sophisticated working knowledge of their own internal bodies, and hence a greater sense of control. (Contains 11 references.) (MDM)
