We're big fans of the PBS kids' show- Wild Kratts. So when I heard about a new app called Wild Kratts World Adventure, I knew it would be a fun one to try out. Here's a bit about it, from a press release that I received:
Through 30 levels of game play, WILD KRATTS World Adventure helps build key skills and encourages science inquiry. With the app, children ages 4 to 8 can tilt and tap their way through games that help them learn how different animals live and adapt to their habitats.Additional features include:· Over 60 stickers and “Wow facts”· Kids can take their own creature power “selfies”· An Orangutan creature power game that lets kids tilt their device back and forth to imitate the swing of the Orangutan.· A Woodpecker creature power game that lets kids imitate the strong beak of the woodpecker by tapping on trees to listen and find beetles.· A Dolphin creature power suit game that lets kids swim and jump with dolphins as they tilt their device to clean up trash in the ocean.
My kids spent quite a while this afternoon playing this app on my iPod. Even though neither of them could read, they were able to easily figure out how to play the games. I finally pried the iPod away from them and had some time to play myself, and I agree, the games are fun! And educational too!
If you're looking for a new app- check this one out!
