Learning Body Science: Yep, There's an App for That!

At our Curriculum Night last night, we were told that October was going to be all about the body in Science class.
Check out what I found on iTunes today!

 ★ The most interesting and interactive anatomy app for kids on the iPad! ★
Learn the principles of human anatomy in a playful and engaging way ✓
Created by a team of medical doctors, educators and parents "This is my body - Anatomy for kids" features information about all important aspects of the human body – all within in a beautifully designed and illustrated app!

The main areas your child will discover and learn about:
✓ You are unique and yet we are all very similar to each other
✓ Growing - how fast do we grow and how long
✓ The skin - and how to protect it
✓ Senses - how do we see, hear, feel, taste and smell
✓ Digestive system - why are we hungry
✓ Respiratory system - your body needs oxygen constantly
✓ Circular system - your heart beats constantly
✓ Muscular system - exercise is good for you
✓ Nervous system - how are information transmitted
✓ Skeleton - how do bones look like and why do you need joints

This is my body - Anatomy for kids follows a playful yet working learning methodology that entertains children while learning.

To ensure that even younger kids can enjoy the app elements are represented visually using color and shapes so they can be recognized by pre-readers. Text information is spoken by a kid, so if your child can't read yet, they still can enjoy the app. For the older kids there is a "little smarty-pants" area where they can read more about a certain part of a segment.
