Educational Potential
This game allows children to discover the functioning of our body through several interactive layers, including a fantastic option that consists of the possibility of making recordings with questions so that they leave them recorded and that educators can leave recorded later the answers to those questions and so solve any doubt that can be given and thus answer each other while playing at the same time you learn. The Human Body is an application that comes with six layers by default to learn about the anatomy of our body. These six layers will show us our skeletal system with each of the bones, the muscular system, the nervous system, the circulatory system, the respiratory system and the digestive system so that they can see the path of food through our body. Play and play with each of these systems to see what happens.
Learning Object / Suggested activities with students
In each of the systems there are interactive animations such as heartbeats, breathing in the lungs, the functioning of the stomach ... and in this way players learn in a more fun way with experimentation, imagination and above all the curiosity of how things work inside our body. It includes a multi-user system so that we have the possibility to create an account for each of the people who will use the application of The Human Body, where each child can put their name to four different characters and take the learning as a game.

Also in the application The Human Body we have more features such as a parent board to manage the accounts, recordings and conversations we have, possibility of changing texts in 50 available languages so that they also practice with other languages, original graphics and sound.

That is perfect game to discover the human body organs and smaller parts, it's functions. Great tool to try theory in practice, especially for learning alone, repeat what was read or heard in the class. Developing skills of analyzing.

This is a great application and a nice review.

The application covers many details of the human body. It goes deep into organs, tissues, and interactively shows processes like digestion or blood circulation. For teachers, this application can go further than a classic book and at the same time, they can select the adequate level to the students.

The application has been criticized by the clumsy controls, but the young students will have no problem and will use the application like they use a complex game.
