This app is now UNIVERSAL! Use it on iPads and iPhones! Thanks for your support of our Montessori Apps!

App Description

Ages 2-5. This app is designed for very young children, even if they cannot read yet, to learn about our solar system!

You will be pleasantly surprised how much you child will learn and remember with this app. Children love the vivid images and the audio descriptions of the planets. They may even memorize a fact or two about our amazing solar system!

In a simple way, the app teaches children about each planet's location, size, orbit time, temperature, composition, and more.

Children love big numbers, and there are plenty in this app!

The Information Center contains informative data on each planet. The solar system is shown to scale for children to be able to visualize the planet distances from the sun, as well as, their relative sizes!

The Planet Sizes activity allows children to drag the planets across the screen to get a feel for their relative sizes and learn the order of the planets. Each planet will "snap" into place and it's name will be heard aloud when it is dragged to the correct position.

The Planet Orbits activity allows children to observe the relative speeds of orbit for each planet in proportion to Earth.

The Planet Card Matching activity contains the famous Three-Part Card System used in Montessori Classrooms. Children can drag the picture cards and labels to match them up to the control cards at the top.

We've packed a ton of information into an app that is designed specifically to teach young minds! Thank you for your support!
