Triangles, rectangles, and circles, everything in the village is a colorful shape! What buildings and characters can you create with these shapes?
A rolling ball, stacking blocks, pointed roofs: as children grow, they become curious about - and eventually begin to recognize - all the shapes hidden in their everyday surroundings. Coloring, matching, dividing and combining shapes are great activities for young learners, and will help them identify and analyze basic shapes.
“Shape the Village” is a high-design app created to stimulate children’s imaginations while educating them about shapes. This lively village, illustrated in bright colors that draw the eye, is jam-packed with engaging characters and buildings with personality - all made up of circles, triangles and squares!
16 different activities focus on the definition, appearance, composition and distinguishing characteristics of different shapes to help 3-5 year-old children develop spatial intelligence and essential geometry skills. Children will be motivated to complete each activity, helping to construct the village buildings and characters. In this village, even the trucks and gorillas have engaging faces and whimsical appeal!
The easy-to-learn activities are designed so that young children can perform them without texts or tutorials. Building and character rewards appear after the completion of each exercise, encouraging kids to continue and complete all the shape activities.
The extra “Workbook” feature suggests printable, fun-filled activities and games for parents and teachers to interact with children and help them further increase their knowledge of basic shapes in everyday lives. Parents and teachers can also monitor and manage each child’s learning progress for each activity.
Features of “Shape the Village” are as follows:
-16 varied activities to teach kids all about circles, triangles and squares
