With PlayScience II, kids will be able to use one app to study various science topics relevant to the 2nd grade curriculum. This app has been designed with the help of educational and child development experts. There are 6 main topics covered in the app: 1) Plants, 2) Animals, 3) Our Earth, 4) Weather & Sky, 5) Matter, and 6) Motion & Energy. When kids select Play on the main menu, they will get to choose one of the six main topics. Within each unit, the science topic will be explained through a series of several exercises and activities that help children understand the concept well. Activities and exercises include things like multiple choice questions, true/false statements, memory games, crosswords and more! As your child progresses through the activities and answers questions correctly, they will earn coins. The coins that children earn can be used to build an aquarium. In the Aquarium section of the app, kids can use their coins to buy different types of fishes, toys and plants for the aquarium. I thought that the Aquarium served as a great reward for learning.
I was impressed with the amount of educational content in the PlaySciene II app. I thought that children could definitely prepare for 2nd grade science through using this app. I would definitely recommend this app to parents who have children who are in or approaching the 2nd grade in school!
Disclosure: I received a free copy of this app for review purposes.
