My daughter gets a little mixed up about some stuff. “I get to go to bed early.” When she really means “late.” Or “one plus one makes eleven.” Those mixups are easy to correct. Some mixups are a little harder to correct. “I have a pain in my pancreas” as she points to her shoulder. And no I don’t know how she knows what her pancreas is. Frankly, I don’t know where my pancreas is or what it’s for. Well I didn’t, but I just googled it to find out, so now I know. But it’s a little harder to explain that sort of thing to a six year old. Heck, I had a hard time understanding some of that anatomy when I was in high school dissecting a cat. But if I want to help my daughter grasp the concept of one plus one I can bust out some Lego bricks or pennies or something. If I want to teach her early vs late I can get out a clock (yes I still have one of those). If I want to teach her the function of the pancreas? Umm, yeah…
Until now, that is. Now I have Smart Anatomy from Oregon Scientific. Smart Anatomy is a learning toy shaped like a human torso that lets you explore the parts of the body that you can’t see. I mean, she has head, shoulders, knees and toes and eyes and ears and mouth and nose down pat. She can see all those. But heart, pancreas, liver, kidney and parietal lobe are a little harder to just point to and say “this is that.” Thanks to the Smart Anatomy Smart Pen now, we can do just that. The model has a changeable boy or girl sticker for the face, so they can relate, and then all the major body parts that a person can’t normally see. Point the pen at the heart and it tells you the name and what it does and all kinds of interesting functions. It has different game modes to keep your kids engaged and hundreds of different sounds, touchpoints, and areas to explore. Now I don’t have to turn to Google to find out about the pancreas, I can turn to my daughter’s Smart Anatomy.
