A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this website.
Kids can learn the names and functions of over 1500 objects from the body’s 13 major anatomical systems. The descriptions and full-color 3D images identify and explain functions and relationships within each system. A video tutorial shows how to make the most of the interactive tools but adding a few learning activities (games, quizzes, puzzles, etc.) would help kids remember the facts. InnerBody can show kids how biology relates to everyday movement and functioning.

There are a lot of health and education related ads that tend to compete with the main information on the page.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this interactive guide to human anatomy uses 3D illustrations and text to show and describe the human body, from skull to distal phalanx (or, head to toe). InnerBody features over 1500 objects in the body’s 13 major anatomical systems with interactive options that allow users to change gender, viewing angle, or to zoom in. The descriptions can be easily understood by a high school biology student or a middle-schooler with an interest in life science.
Is It Any Good?
As free anatomy sites go, the realistic illustrations and detailed descriptions from the award-winning InnerBody are better than most. Its interactive tools give users control over how they explore the human body, and the “Change Anatomical System” feature is unique. However, advertisements are a fact of life on free sites, and while InnerBody’s ads are topical, they are invasive. They distract users and force all of the good anatomy information into awkward pop-up boxes that sometimes require an extra click to get it all. Overall InnerBody is a good, interactive companion to a biology class or text if you can get past the offers to solve lower back pain issues, get your social work degree, or donate your body to science.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
