Skeleton Dance is a simple app that provides a basic overview of some of the main bones in the body.

While Skeleton Dance isn’t the most in depth educational app there is, it does include a brief overview of the main bones in the body. Players are presented with an empty skeleton shell and are required to correctly place each bone, one-by-one. As each bone is correctly placed, the name of the bone appears, and the narrator reads it aloud. This allows children to not only learn the picture and placement of the bone, but also the name of it as well. For early readers, this app also provides children with a chance of adding new words to their vocabulary.
After the entire skeleton is pieced back together, it does a little dance and eventually allows children to run a magnifying glass over various bones in order to learn more fun facts about each piece.
It is important to note that this app is a simple overview of the skeletal system and doesn’t include all of the technical names for each bone. For instance, instead of using ‘metatarsals’ for the foot bones, this app just uses ‘foot’. With that said, this app is a good way to introduce children to the bones of the body.
Aimed at a younger audience, this app provides a puzzle concept for children to piece back together as well as a dance sequence that children will enjoy. With that said it would be nice to have an additional entertainment activity to keep children engaged a bit more.
