A working understanding of analogies is an important tool for students of any age to develop, as they help children understand relationships between pairs of concepts. Analogies are a more structured form of something we already do every day : compare one thing to another, for the purposes of explanation. In every aspect of education, from math and science to art and language, analogies serve as a useful way of learning new things.
Most standardized tests still use analogy questions, which are presented in a format of A : B :: C : ___, and can be understood as “A is to B as C is to what?” This app is set up with a similar design, to get kids used to this style of comparison. Also, you will find that children are challenged with a variety of verbal concepts in order to hone their skills. This unique combination of words provides kids a fun and creative way to build their vocabulary and develop analytical skills. There are 4 sets of 16 analogies presented 12 at each time, with a total of 64 analogy questions. The placement of questions and answers is varied with the start of each new game. This allows the user to have an entertaining and unique experience every time they play!
