Anatomy For Kids

Inside the Human Body

Anatomy Arcade
A fun interactive site with games that will help you learn the formal names, say, of muscles, bones, and such. Games organized by body system. You need to be a good enough reader so that terms like “pituitary gland” and “deltoid” don’t throw you.

Anatomy of the Human Body
The Bartleby.com edition of Gray’s Anatomy of the Human Body by Henry Gray features 1,247 vibrant engravings-many in color-from the classic 1918 publication, as well as a subject index with 13,000 entries ranging from the Antrum of Highmore to the Zonule of Zinn. Advanced.

The Anatomy Coloring Book

The Anatomy Coloring Book
4th Edition
by Wynn Kapit and Lawrence M. Elson
Organized according to body systems, each of the 162 two-page spreads featured in this book includes an ingenious color-key system where anatomical terminology is linked to detailed illustrations of the structures of the body. When you color to learn with The Anatomy Coloring Book, you make visual associations with key terminology, and assimilate information while engaging in kinesthetic learning. Studying anatomy is made easy and fun!The Fourth Edition features user-friendly two-page spreads with enlarged art, clearer, more concise text descriptions, and new boldface headings that make this classic coloring book accessible to a wider range of learners.

Animal Cell Structure
Animal cells are typical of the eukaryotic cell, enclosed by a plasma membrane and containing a membrane-bound nucleus and organelles.

Human Body and Mind – Interactive Body
Rotate, drag and drop body parts into a male or female body. Find out more about each part.

Life Fantastic – Where do I come from?
From the Christmas Lecture Series. Your life stems from a single cell. Yet within the trillion of cells that make up your body lies a fundamental conundrum. Each cell contains identical DNA, yet muscle cells are very different from skin cells; blood cells are very different from brain cells.

Visible Human
Annotated images of cross sections of the human body.

Inside a Chicken

Dissecting a Whole Chicken
Why not dissect a whole chicken to investigate the muscles and bones of the torso? (Come to think of it, you could probably also dissect a turkey, a cornish hen, or a holiday duck, but I haven’t tried any of these myself.)

Inside a Frog

Whole Frog Project
Computers can’t teach everything in anatomy, but they can teach some things better, either by themselves or through synergy with conventional methods. Try out this award-winning virtual frog- as a case in point.

Inside Mammal Bodies

Atlas of Veterinary Clinical Anatomy
The body is composed of several functional units called organ systems. Each organ system is a collection of organs that function together to perform a specific job to keep the body healthy. Tissues, and the microscopic units of tissues, the cells, are the building blocks of organs. Tissues include materials such as muscles, nerves and epithelia and connective tissues that bind the other tissues together. Provided by Hill’s Pet Nutrition.

Virtual Fetal Pig Dissection
Our simulation of the dissection of the fetal pig was designed to provide an alternative exercise for students in our introductory biology class as well as provide review material for students prior to their lab practical exam.

Body Functions

Virtual Labs
Immerse yourself in the world of biology. Become a scientist in our virtual labs, where you can identify deadly pathogens, probe heart patients, dissect a leech, or assay antibodies!


Respiratory System

Inside the Human Body – The Respiratory System
Discover what our breathing system looks like and how it functions. The web site was produced by a youth team at the Saskatchewan Lung Association.

Lung Model
Make a model lung from a soda bottle, a balloon, and some plastic from a bag. More projects and explanations included.



Remembrance of smells past
How do smells impact on memories and emotions? Science is unraveling how a whiff of perfume or a newly mown lawn can offer us a free ticket back to our childhood. As a child, if you want badly to remember something, would it help to also smell something?
