A Dog's Body

As you can see, a dog's body is similar to ours.
Each of us has a skeleton that holds our body together.
Inside our skeleton is a brain, a heart, and lungs.
We both have backbones.

Try this activity:
Can you think of other things
that we have in common with dogs?

Name some more things inside our bodies (like bones).
Name some things on the outside of our skeleton (like legs).
Name some feelings we have in common with dogs (like hunger).
4. Name some activities both dogs and people can do (like run).
