U.S. Army STARS: Anatomy

Are you a teacher, parent, or caregiver looking for a stress-free STEM activity? This app and lesson plan on the human skeletal system may be just what you need. Using the interactive STARS Anatomy app (available at the link above and downloadable from Apple or Google Play), kids will follow along with the "Tinysaurs" (the app's characters) as they go on quests, play games, and test their scientific knowledge. In addition to being free and fun, the app introduces users to important anatomy concepts. Users then build upon this knowledge with the corresponding lesson plan (found by visiting the Lessons page and then selecting the Anatomy tab at the top center of the page). The curriculum includes guided questions and links to reading and visual materials. While some aspects of the lesson are designed for classroom settings (with group work and projector images), these can be easily adapted for online learning. The lesson plan's length is also adaptable from one to five days (see the Lesson Duration section for guidance on how to structure accordingly). This project is a collaboration between the U.S. Army and other partners, including Tennessee Technical College and James Clemens High School.
