Ranked as a top 100 education app in the U.S. December 2009, Bone Scan Bob offers a ridicuIously fun introduction to skeletal anatomy for elementary school kids.
In Bone Scan Bob, you're presented with random bones to identify. Just touch the skeleton in the correct location. The correct bone is highlighted and you proceed to the next one.
Stumped? Go ahead! Press the "Bone Scan" button. Bob glows an eerie green, his eyes roll around in their sockets, and the correct bone location is revealed for you -- complete with sound effects fit for a Frankenstein movie!
Score data is given for each round of 10 bone identifications. So shoot for 100%, challenge your friends to a game, or just fry Bob to a crisp. You'll know your major skeletal bones in no time. And it's all in the name of good educational fun.

Fun way to memorize location of bones
Would love to see audio added, as some of the bone names may be hard for a child to read, depending on their reading level. A simple but interactive way to memorize location of bones.
Trial and error game
Fun for kids, but only audio is a buzzer. Game says it's good for elementary kids, but it assumes the student can read. Might be better for older kids, but not my kindergartner. Would be great if there was a "teach" mode and a "game" mode
Not quite what expected
Does ok job testing your knowledge but not teaching what the bones are. Needs improvement in this area if your gonna charge $ I would not recommend
