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.

NO READING REQUIRED:
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.
