The Human Body by Tinybop app is designed to inspire inquisitive kids and get them interested in learning about the human body. This app has six interactive layers of the body in addition to individual models of organs such as the heart and stomach. There are also several features such as 51 available app languages, the choice to create up the four avatars, the use of iPad tools to demonstrate how parts of the body act like the iPad, and a recording feature that allows kids to leave questions for their parents or teachers.
This app can be integrated into elementary or middle school classes. Students can be divided into four groups that are assigned to investigate different areas in the body. The app can also be used for initial lessons about the human body; students can first play around with the app and then leave questions about the body for their teachers. Teachers can then use these questions to structure their lessons around what students want to learn about and then add more information as questions are answered.
