App Description*Editor's Choice Award Winner from Children's Technology Review*
Sidâ€™s Science Fair engages players (ages 3 to 6) in experiential learning with core science and math concepts from classification and identifying patterns to charting and sequencing. Emceeâ€™d by Sid, from the hit series SID THE SCIENCE KID, the app presents three absolutely addictive Science Fair games specially crafted for your curious early learner(s):
GABRIELAâ€™S â€śCOLLECTION INSPECTIONâ€ť
Use your interactive magnifying glass to discover fascinating patterns among a wide variety of objects, from butterflies and buttons to keys and coins. Gabriela has fourteen different collections to inspectâ€”and different patterns every timeâ€”so this game offers many hours of repeat play!
MAYâ€™S â€śCHART IT!â€ť
Think statistics are boring? No, no, no. Not with May and her awesome â€śChart It!â€ť game. Players organize her miniature stuffed animals, balloon creatures, origami, silly faces, and other cool stuff on a chart by observing shared traits. These traits can include color, shape, orientation, and more. May has seven different collections, each of which has ten items and three charts.
GERALDâ€™S â€śTIME MACHINEâ€ť
Get ready to travel through time! Or, rather, to make Geraldâ€™s amazing pictures travel through timeâ€¦ First, choose from among his fourteen picture collections. Then order the pictures into a sequence, such as a snowman melting, candles burning down, a flower growing, or an apple being eaten. Once your sequence is in order (forwards or backwards in time both work!), you can swipe back and forth or tilt your device left or right to watch the time machine in action. But beware! Time machines can have unexpected resultsâ€¦
