Chicken Pox

Video Summary
In this lesson, students demonstrate their knowledge of body parts. They begin by talking about the chicken pox and reading Marc Brown's story, Arthur a la varicelle (Arthur has the chicken pox). Then they sing a song about the chicken pox that names different parts of the body. Finally, students do a cut-and-paste activity, labeling a drawing of a person with words for body parts that they had practiced in the song.
