Today, there are plenty of apps on the market that are both educational and fun—plus, you might just learn a thing or two yourself by playing them together. We've shortlisted five education apps below to kickstart the learning:
Math: Sushi Monster
Sushi Monster teaches kids the fundamentals of math (addition and multiplication, specifically) in a fun and highly engaging setting. After all, who doesn't love sushi?
Players must select numbers strategically off the sushi counter in order to feed the monster, earning points with each correct answer to eventually unlock new levels.
2. Science: Science360
Help your kid develop a love of science at an early age with the National Science Foundation (NSF) Science 360 app. With plenty of fun and engaging streaming videos to watch, there’s even a news feed of breaking news from NSF-funded institutions.
3. Anatomy: The Human Body
The app helps kids learn new vocabulary, explore detailed, interactive models of the heart, brain, eyes and stomach, and learn how the skeletal, muscular, immune, respiratory systems function.
Learning multiple languages is a must these days, and the highly addictive app, Duolingo, makes it incredibly easy.
Each bite-sized lesson is turned into a game in itself with reading, listening and speaking exercises, in-lesson grading, hearts to keep yourself ‘alive’ and a streak count to show how many days in a row you’ve been learning.
5. Coding: Daisy The Dinosaur
Learning to code is a fundamental skill in today’s digital environment, and Daisy The Dinosaur is the perfect introduction for kids.
Using a drag and drop interface, kids will intuitively learn the basics of objects, sequencing, loops and events—in order to animate Daisy and make her dance on screen.
