body parts in Spanish

Descubre las palabras del cuerpo humano is a good activity for children who are learning to read and write the body parts in Spanish. Each screen has a picture of a body part and a word with two letters missing. There are letter combinations above the word and you drag and drop the correct letter combination into the spaces. Children do not have to recognize the word with the letters missing. Instead, they can identify the vocabulary from the picture and put in the missing letter sounds.
