Free stuff for the Study of the Human Body - Updated

Some free stuff we're using for studying the human body:

A detailed colouring book on anatomy:




This website contains articles by Dr. J. D. Ratcliff, the author of I Am Joe's Body:  

'Your body organs talk to you and explain their function in simple easy to understand detail.'


11 major muscle groups: This quick video goes over 11 major muscle groups in the body. Rishi is a pediatric infectious disease physician and works at Khan Academy.




The next three videos cover Genetics. They are done quite well but if viewing with a younger child check the third one as it explains fertilisation. It's tastefully done and shouldn't be a problem:
















The next two are videos on the Integumentary System. The first one explains the layers of the skin and the second how first, second and third degree burns affect the skin.












This one is a journey through the human eye which I thought was one of the simplest and best explanations I've come across. It only covers the main parts of the eye but enough to make its function clear.
