Health Vocab Activity

Here is a quick and easy visual vocab activity on the topic of health. It works on phones and smartboards and would make a good warm-up activity for classes. It would be suitable for A2-B1 levels.

I will add a part 2 and part 3 in time, since there is still a lot of vocab on this topic to cover.
