Learning about the Human Body: Body Tracing

Fun Body Tracing Activity with kids “Real size of me!”


My son was SUPER into anatomy (human body). After he read the book “Human Body Theater,” his favorite activities were human body related. After we learned how our body works, we traced his shape and placed construction paper organs!


What We Used

  • Huge paper (We used brown masking paper we bought at the home improvement store.)
  • Pencil
  • Marker
  • Construction paper
  • Scissors
  • Image of the human body (Books, the printed copy you found from the internet, and etc.)
