Explore dinosaur facts, learn body parts of the dinos, and have fun with dino puzzles
Publisher: Rantek Inc.

Why we love this app

This app is adaptable to many age and grade levels. There is information that will engage both early childhood and elementary school children as they learn about dinosaurs and complete dino puzzles and sorting activities.

What it teaches and how it works

In this app, children can learn facts about dinosaurs through both visual and auditory means. Interesting information about where specific dinosaurs lived, what they ate, and other facts are given. In addition, students explore parts of the dinosaur and their names. There are two activity levels besides the informational level. In those activities, students can sort dinosaurs and also assemble pieces of dinosaurs in a puzzle-like activity. There is no tracking information for students in this app, but it is still of great value.

Why your kid won't be able to put it down

All kids love dinosaurs! And, with this app, they can learn about different kinds of dinosaurs, hear their names and facts about them read to them, learn interesting facts about them, and do sorting and puzzle activities. This app is one they will continue to return to as they grow.
