AppDictions App Review
Discover Dinosaurs for the iPad, a new game for children ages 6 to 10 years old. Discover Dinosaurs is geared towards leaning basic facts about dinosaurs in a fun and interesting way. The app presents kids with three question quiz at the beginning of each level. As they progress through the app the questions get tougher and your kids need to get at least one question correct to unlock the next level. For each question a picture of a dinosaur is shown and your children pick an answer ranging from what type of dinosaur it is to where it lived and what it ate. After an answer to all three questions is answered, your children have to solve three puzzles on the three dinosaurs they have seen previously. This is a great way your kids to retain what they have learned.
Overall Discover Dinosaur is a great app with awesome graphics and an easy-to-use interface. This app is great for you and your children to learn from in a fun and exciting way. So if your kids are in the age range and you want them to learn about these amazing species we absolutely recommend Discover Dinosaur.
Discover Dinosaurs is part puzzle and part quiz combined into one app. It’s a great way to learn about dinosaurs while having fun at the same time. The goal is to collect gold stars and dinosaurs which are added to your collection by answering questions and solving image based puzzles. The app is loaded with fun facts and offers increasingly difficult levels of play as you advance.
Discover Dinosaurs is ideal for children 6 to 10 years of age, but that doesn’t mean the older kids and adults won’t be captivated as well. The image based puzzle is not too challenging for younger children, while compelling enough for the older kids as well.
Discover Dinosaurs includes nine levels of play. Each level begins by testing your knowledge about dinosaurs in the form of a short, multiple choice quiz. Once answers are chosen, a puzzle combining dinosaur images from the quiz questions is generated and can be solved by matching individual tiles for each picture one by one. After each dinosaur picture is completed the answer to the question will be revealed and a gold star will be given for each correct answer. Obtaining one gold star will unlock the next level of play where the puzzles will become more challenging.
Discover Dinosaurs is packed with information, and in addition to learning the basics about dinosaurs, such as their names, where they lived, when they lived, and what they ate, you’ll also discover amazing facts about each of the dinosaurs as the puzzles are played. With the success of each correct answer, a dinosaur will be added to your collection so you can view it and read about it at any time. Collect them all and learn about dinosaurs along the way.
The “Dinosaurs” theme incorporates a prehistoric setting in which a child is sure to immerse him or herself into. The application is filled with rich illustrations, animations and audio. Better yet, Dinosaurs is perfect for social learning and collaborative classroom exercises too! The multi-touch operation allows for multiple children to match the puzzles at the same time in a team effort. Whether it’s in the classroom, collaboration between siblings, or parents helping the children along, Discover Dinosaurs offers a learning environment conducive to cooperative learning and play.
