In human body games, players learn to place the organs in the human body. In the process, they also learn about each organ’s function. Often the games are such that they feel like operating a patient using an operating table and surgeon’s equipment. They usually also contain a book with interesting information about the human body and that can help kids memorize complicated words used in anatomy. Therefore, human body games can also help expand vocabulary. Anatomy games can also make great gifts especially for kids that are generally interested in science and biology.
We recommend the Somebody Board Game (ages 6 to 10, buy from Amazon here). It is one of the most enjoyable and well-designed games in the market. It can help kids learn about human anatomy and younger children can also use it as a puzzle. It includes five games, question cards and can be played by 1 to 4 players. In this game players have to place body parts on a human body and they learn about the various organs and their function in the process. You will see that kids will learn more about the human body by playing this game than by reading a book about the human body. The game is made of good quality material so that it will last for a long time.
Another game that we recommend is the Smart Lab Squishy You Explore It Human Body (ages 8 to 16, buy from Amazon here). This game also includes a book that shows how the human body works. Players use a kit and surgeon’s equipment to remove or place human organs. They learn about the strucuture of the human skeleton and the various muscles in the human body. The game also includes activities that can perform using the kit (which is like a human body on an operating table).
Overall a great game that make players feel like they are a surgeon performing a surgery on a patient. Also a game that can make kids gain an interest in medicine. The game is recommended for kids ages 8 to 16 but we believe that it can be enjoyed by even younger children. Reportedly, children aged 6 have been enjoying this game (however it is not appropriate for younger children). Teachers have also used this game in the classroom with great success. Overall a highly recommended game!
