5 FREE Websites and Apps to Explore the Human Body

Help your child discover how the human body works with these free printables, quizzes, and apps.

This website is jam packed full of videos (featuring animated characters Chloe and Nurb), online quizzes, and free activity sheets – for each of the major human body systems. The videos are a great way to introduce a topic and the quizzes work well if you want to test what has been learnt.

Recommended age: 5+

If your child wants to explore a human body system in more detail, the Innerbody website is a good place to start. Interactive 2D and 3D models are available for all major anatomy systems and the supportive text (while lots of it) flows well and is kept relatively simple.

Recommended age: 8+

We’ve been following Tiny Bop for years and love their apps. The free (lite) version of their award-winning Human Body app is a great way to explore what they have to offer. In the Lite version, children can interact with a human model to explore the respiratory, circulatory, and immune systems. Tiny Bop also provides ‘handbooks’ for grownups to help support your child’s learning (here).

Recommended age: 5+

The Human Body 3D app by Mozaik is best suited for older children (8+). The 3D model of the human body (male only – sorry!) rotates 360 degrees. You can also zoom in to learn about each part of a system in more detail. Start with the Animation section as an introduction. This app can also be used with a virtual reality (VR) headset for a more immersive experience.

Recommended age: 8+

A super simplistic quiz app suited for older (8+) children (and parents!) who want to cram in as many human body facts as possible. With 35 levels and 10 questions per level, that’s a lot of facts!

Recommended age: 8+

The following paid £ apps, for younger children, are also worth a look:

My Body – Anatomy for Kids (for ages 5-7)

Toca Doctor (for preschool children)
