NAMING THE "PARTS"

Parts of Trucks     (V3)
For all children who love big machines and vehicles, here is an exercise for labeling the parts of four MACK® trucks. Each truck is represented on 7 two-color laminated cards (3.5" x 4"). One card labels the type of truck and 6 cards highlight the specific features of that truck. The Replicard (8½” x 11") reproduces the four trucks. It is photocopied to produce worksheets for the child to color and to write each truck’s name and its six parts, using the 2-color control cards as a reference. Completed worksheets can be stapled together to make a “Parts of a Truck” booklet. Trucks represented are: cement mixer, dump truck, platform truck, tanker truck.

Bones of a Child Skeleton      (SK5)
A skeleton of a six-year-old child is represented on 23 laminated cards (6” x 3”) that highlight individual bones and bone groups. A Replicard (8½” x 11”) with two outline skeletons is photocopied to make half-page worksheets for the child to color and to write the names of the bones. Worksheets can be stapled together to make a ”Bone of a Child Skeleton” booklet.




Exterior Body Labels    
(T4)
Eleven white vinyl labels name the exterior parts of a child’s body. The Replicard (8½” x 11") with a body outline is photocopied to make full-page worksheets. Labels (3" x 1-1/8”) are placed on the worksheet, or placed on the child’s body or body tracing. Children can also color and label the worksheets by referring to the 2-color “completed” worksheet.



Face Labels

Nine white vinyl labels name the exterior parts of a face in profile. The Replicard (8½” x 11") with the face outline is photocopied to make full-page worksheets. Labels (3" x 1-1/8”) are placed on the worksheet, or on a tracing of the child’s own profile. Children can also color and label the worksheets by referring to the 2-color “completed” worksheet. (In-Print code T5)


Classroom Animals     (AK5)
Sixteen familiar classroom pets are pictured in this set. Each animal is illustrated in two colors with exterior parts of the body highlighted and labeled. Four Replicards (8½” x 11") duplicate each animal (4 per sheet). The Replicards are photocopied to make quarter-page worksheets for the child to color and name the parts of each animal. After coloring, the worksheets can be stapled together to make a “Parts of an Animal” booklet. Purchase two sets to create 3-part cards. Animals illustrated: gerbil, hamster, guinea pig, rabbit, salamander, frog, parakeet, chick, hermit crab, snail, butterfly, ant, snake, lizard, turtle, goldfish.

Parts of a Caterpillar     (LE1)
A caterpillar is the larval stage of a butterfly. Seven duplicate 2-color illustration cards (4" x 3") show the parts of a caterpillar highlighted in green. One set of picture cards has been bound into a booklet and the other is to be cut apart. The child matches the labels to the picture cards, using the booklet to check for error. Older children can read and match the seven definition cards to the labeled picture cards (also using the booklet for control). The replicard (8½” x 11") with blank line drawings of the caterpillar is photocopied to make quarter-page worksheets for the children to color and label. Completed worksheets can be stapled together to make a “Parts of a Caterpillar” booklet.

Parts of a Butterfly     (LE2)
Learn the parts of a butterfly. Its body looks very different from that of a caterpillar, yet there are many similarities. Nine duplicate 2-color illustration cards (4" x 4") show the parts of a butterfly highlighted in yellow. One set of picture cards has been bound into a booklet and the other is to be cut apart. The child matches the labels to the picture cards, using the booklet to check for error. Older children can read and match the seven definition cards to the labeled picture cards (also using the booklet for control). The replicard (8½” x 11") with blank line drawings of the butterfly is photocopied to make half-page worksheets for the children to color and label. Completed worksheets can be stapled together to make a “Parts of a Butterfly” booklet.



Parts of a Dragonfly    
(AK6)
Six body parts of a dragonfly are illustrated on 6 transparent vinyl cards (4" x 4"). By stacking the transparent “parts” cards on the control card with a dragonfly silhouette, the dragonfly becomes whole. Cards are of vinyl and do not need to be laminated.


Parts of a Mushroom    
(FK1)
Parts of a gilled mushroom are highlighted and labeled on six 2-color cards (3" x 5"). Photocopy the Replicard (8½” x 11") to make quarter page worksheets. The child colors and labels the worksheets, using the picture cards as a guide. Completed worksheets can be stapled together to make a booklet for “Parts of a Mushroom”.



Parts of an Atom Diagram      (AT1)
Before understanding matter, children must learn about atoms. Atoms are the basic building blocks of matter. This set of duplicate diagrams illustrates and defines an atom and its 5 significant parts. The six definition cards are cut off one of the diagrams. The child reads the definition cards and relocates them alongside the atom illustration. The duplicate diagram card serves as the control. Background information and lesson suggestions are included for the teacher. Cards (6¾” x 13") are in full color and laminated.
