App DescriptionJoin the fun in the magical town of Green$treets by rescuing endangered animals! Earn money by planting a beautiful garden, by tossing items in the treehouse using a catapult, creating robots from recycled junk, saving energy around the house and keeping Shmootz(tm), the gooey slob who is always making a mess, from ruining all the fun! After the animals are rescued, take care of them by feeding and playing with them until they are ready to go home.
Kids don’t even realize that they are learning essential money and math skills:
- Setting Goals
- Earning Money
- Saving & Spending Decision Making
- Giving to Charity
- Borrowing and Repaying Money
- Buying Insurance
Green$treets is a revolutionary new way to teach kids ages 5-10 about money and responsibility via fun game play---brought to you by Neale Godfrey, the creator and leader in the “Kids and Money” field since 1988 and New York Times #1 Bestselling Author of 26 books. The Green$treets system has been developed over the last 30 years in books and financial literacy curricula used throughout educational systems across the country and around the world. Kids play with a variety of characters, each with their own unique financial and ecological personalities, designed by award-winning Tom Hester, creator of Shrek.
Bring the magic of Green$treets to life by visiting www.GreenStreetCommons.com to obtain job cards, job charts and an activity book. Another revolutionary element of Green$treets is the incorporation of Augmented Reality, brought to you by Aurasma. In these job cards, job charts, activity book, and animal badges, children will scan the items at the Green$treets bank from within the app, which will activate the Augmented Reality. Watch the Magic as the job cards come to life, as the characters interact directly with your child! Job cards will also earn in-game money! Parents and grandparents can have children perform chores to earn allowance and start to understand the concept of work-for-pay.
