These bright, bilingual & colour-coded body labels are a great way to support your health inquiry!

Looking for other body labels? You might want to check out our ‘Puberty & Body changes’ labels in our Health and well being category here.

This set is jam-packed with labels for both external body features, internal system & organs, skeletal labels and links to our Māori world view.  This set includes Wharenui (meeting house) labels that provide connections between our body parts & this unique and intricate building.  The Wharenui is often thought to represent the body of an ancestor and specific parts of the building correspond to parts of the human body.


This set of 80+ body part labels includes:

  • 2 labels per A4 landscape page
  • Each label shows the Māori word in bold with a smaller English translation
  • Each label includes an appropriate illustration to match the word shown
  • There are several versions of the human body included for printing (assemble 4 of the A4 sheets provided to make a large body outline or a full skeleton) You could label these outlines, or get the students to draw their own body parts/internal organs/bones before labeling.
  • 2 A4 printables are included containing 2 black & white human outlines and 2 skeletons (perfect for students to share their learning by drawing in the body parts or adding labels)
  • Does your corner of Aotearoa use a different translation for one of the labels? Have I missed something that’s important to your students? Please let me know, I’m happy to add in additional labels at no extra cost!
