After viewing, the class could work out a version of the action song ‘Head, shoulders, knees and toes’, substituting the names of the major organs. Pupils only need to find one rhyme for an organ to make the song work. For example, ‘Brain, liver, lungs and heart, lungs and heart, Brain, liver, lungs and heart, lungs and heart, Skin, stomach, kidneys, intestines play their part … Brain, liver, lungs and heart, lungs and heart.’ The children could then sing their song through, pointing at the various locations of the organs.
