Want to introduce the wonders of anatomy to younger pupils? The Human Body app for iPad teaches all about the body in a fun, interactive (and not too grisly!) way. Here’s why we recommend it…
What is The Human Body?
The Human Body (Tinybop, £1.99) is an interactive, animated model of the human body, in iPad app form. It lets pupils learn human anatomy through six interactive and animated layers of systems (Nervous, Skeletal, Respiratory, Circulatory, Digestive and Muscular). Pupils can prod away at animated organs to their hearts’ content, all the while learning what the body’s made of and how it works.
How can it benefit the classroom?
With a fun, animated style, The Human Body is squarely aimed at younger audiences, so it will be perfect for encouraging key stage 1 and 2 pupils who may not quite be ready for some of the more graphic anatomy and science apps out there.
There’s also an accompanying handbook aimed at helping teachers make the most of the app in the classroom. Full of great ideas for lesson objectives, quizzes and lesson ideas, it’s an essential read and comes free (take a look at the PDF here).
What’s the best feature?
