Learning Games and More
Curious World includes learning games, books and videos that feature topics like science, math and literacy. You might use this app in the classroom to introduce or reinforce concept. It might be tool that you recommend to families at the beginning of the year for at-home support, or something you share with parents if their child needs extra practice at home.
I love apps that feature familiar characters and include lots of ways for students to interact with content. Whether kids open up in a book in the app or watch a video before playing a game, there is lots for them to pick and choose from as they become independent learners. It’s so important for students develop a sense of curiosity and this app does a great job of giving kids a space to explore.
