Human being’s body is amazing. There is so much we can learn about our body: the structure, the function, and most amazingly, how the many parts work together to support our daily life. Teaching kids about human body is complex, and I find it easier to have something visual – pictures and, ideally, videos. Additionally, it requires knowledge to explain the concepts right, yet still at kids level, so they understand. My Incredible Body is an educational app specially designed for school age kids to understand human body and its function.
I love the app for its nice pictures and videos, and its layered approach showing the anatomy.
When kids open the app, they can choose which system they want to explore first: digestive, respiratory, skeletal, urinary, sensory, muscular, or cardiovascular system. Under each system, they can explore the whole body or by parts of the body, like head. Either way, there will be animated visuals showing the structure and how things work. For example, on digestive system, kids will follow a piece of food go through mouth, esophagus, stomach, intestine, …
Kids can follow the guided tour, or manually control where they want to see. This is a nice feature, since there are always parts that some kids want to look at a little more.
All visuals are 3D. Kids can touch the picture and spin the object around to see it from any of the 360 angle.
On each part, kids can selectively add layers, muscle, bones, nerves, etc. This gives kids a good sense how different parts fit together.
There is a quiz for each section, where kids can find out how much they have learned and mastered.
Overall, My Incredible Body is a well designed educational app for school age kids, teaching kids about human body. If you are looking for learning materials on human body for your child, this is a great choice.
My Incredible Body is available on iPhone, iPod and iPad. It is also available for Android on Google Play, for Windows devices on Windows Store.
