Tinybop, a wonderful developer of children’s apps, is back at it again with another fun and educational title.
Designed for children ages 6 to 8, Weather by Tinybop allows anyone to explore the wild and wacky weather forces all around.
To aid with the learning process, parents or teachers can even download a free handbook with a number of activities that tie-in with the app.
Hot and cold
While the app gives an overall picture of what weather does to the landscape, there are also a number of detailed close-ups and infographics. Kids can see first hand how temperature change affects life both indoors and outside.
A walk among the clouds
You can draw the clouds and see how they are affected by different altitudes and natural structures like mountains. Kids can even jump into a cloud and combine droplets or crystals of ice to make different types of precipitation.
And along with the everyday weather, kids can also learn about extreme events like hurricanes and tornadoes. After zooming in on a tornado, you can see how it forms and what happens on the ground.
Weather by Tinybop is designed for the iPhone/iPod touch and all iPad models. It can be downloaded now on the App Store for $2.99.
My 8-year-old daughter has recently been exploring the water cycle in her science class, so this app couldn’t have come at a better time in my house. Just like the other great titles from the developer, Weather by Tinybop is well-designed and does a great job helping to educate children about the how and why of science. It’s highly recommended.
