There are a vast number of television programs that deal with human anatomy and physiology. On a typical day you can watch shows about conjoined twins, little people, or gigantism to name a few.
Hardly a day goes by that some anomaly of nature isn’t offered up for our edutainment. Not that I’m complaining. I think it’s a good thing anytime you can camouflage some education in the midst of mindless entertainment.
My only complaint is as an online tutor I don’t have the budget to create the same caliber of material for my students, but the good news is that there is a viable alternative.
Anatomy for Kids
Kids are naturally fascinated by the human body. They want explanations for all the disgusting bodily functions like farting, belching, and pooping.
It doesn’t get much better during the teen years. By then it’s all about sex education and reproduction.
As a teacher, I’m not above any of it. Whatever floats your boat. As long as you can name the major body systems by the end of the semester, I’m fine with all of it.
Human anatomy and physiology are fantastically interesting subjects. It’s not just about what body parts are attached to other body parts – although that’s part of it. It’s also about how weird and mysterious our bodies are and the fantastically horrible things that can happen when even a small thing goes wrong.
Of course the typical anatomy book shows you how things are supposed to look, but I like to give my students ‘added value’. I’ve collected a variety of stories and photographs that break up the monotony of ‘the leg bone’s connected to the hip bone’ kind of stuff that turns kids off studying anatomy.
For instance, there’s the story of Chang and Eng the first recorded Siamese twins. Another option is to take an onlinetrip to the Mutter Museum which collects mind-boggling anatomic specimens.

Features and Benefits
The course over delivers in terms of content. This means you can adjust the level of difficulty by making it less difficult for younger students or more rigorous for the older ones. This is a great option for homeschoolers–especially if you have children in multiple grades.
From my perspective as a tutor, I love it because I can tailor the content to my students’ grade level.

This is important to you because . . .
If you take this course you won’t only learn anatomy, but you’ll enjoy learning about it as well.
The typical anatomy course is time consuming, expensive, and takes a major level of dedication to complete. This course is none of that.
The Human Anatomy and Physiology Course is designed to be completed in 3 days, but there’s no hard and fast rule about it. It’s a self-study course.
What does this mean to you? It’s a great way to learn about anatomy if you’re short on time and/or money. But if you’re not in any hurry to complete it, that’s fine too. Explore the human body at your own pace.
