This is a command for a preschool class in which I'm not sure if I need to use its or their. The command as follows:

"Point to each part of the body and say its name."

The idea is basically that the preschool children point to a part of their body and say the name of that part of the body. Example: Point to head and say "head".

  • Use "its" because "part of the body" is singular.

Since each part of the body refers to a part of body, its is the correct pronoun

Point to each part of the body and say its name

The command applies to each child though you address the entire class.
