Earth School iPhone / iPad App Review

Earth School iPhone and iPad apps by Yateland are fantastic for teaching young kids about how the universe began in a fun and effective way that is at just the right level for them to understand. The app contains eighteen mini games which are highly interactive and engaging which kids will enjoy playing while learning a host of information as they do. You will be amazed how much your child (and you) will learn by playing this.

It covers topics including the big bang, explains what a black hole is, how planets are generated, the birth of the galaxy, the evolution of species including dinosaur extinction and fossil hunting. When you load the app you tap the screen and discover how the universe began in a big bang. You then move step by step through the various stages colliding and matching planets to create a galaxy. Learn all about comets and how to recognise them along with Saturn and it's rings, the earth, the moon and the sun. Next you are introduced to cells and how they split to create a creature which evolves from a fish to a dinosaur. There are fossil matching, help the dinosaur and feed the dinosaur games which are interactive and engaging.

Learn facts about the sun, planets, comets and black holes
Ben loves Earth School and I have found it a fantastic app to keep him entertained while out and about. He has learned so much from it and can easily recognise comets, planets, black holes and talk about them in a very knowledgeable way for a three year old. The graphics are bright and colourful, the interface is kid friendly and easy to navigate with fun characters that are sure to appeal to little ones.
