Do your kids know where the spleen is and what is its purpose ? Do they know that one lung is smaller than the other ? Do they know that the hairs in their nose traps allergens and dust. These are some of the information your kids will learn from this wonderful app brought to you by Nthfusion. Our apps are available at 50% discount to educational institutions. Visit http://www.apple.com/itunes/education/ to participate in the program.
If you own an iPad, please purchase the IPad version of "Body organs for kids" . At this moment we do not have a universal app that includes both the iPad and iphone versions.
Parents - Please carve out a few minutes from your busy schedule and sit with your kid in a comfortable place, and explore this human body organs app. You will be pleasantly surprised how many things you have forgotten about organs that you once knew.
Teachers - As kids go through each organ, please encourage them to explore on some of the research question by browsing through books and internet. This will re-inforce their learning. We will add some workbooks (quiz) in the forthcoming releases. Also, if your classroom has a digital projector, app can be displayed on the projector. You would need iOS 4.3 version on your iPad for this.
