Where is the trunk on a tree? What is the name of the colourful parts of a flower? Do butterflies have legs? One of the basic starting points in early science is for children to become familiar with the basic structure of plants, trees and different types of animals, which this fun app teaches in a simple and interesting way.
Knowing the names of the parts means children have the vocabulary to discuss animals and plants further: when children are out in the garden, or in a park, they can describe plants more fully; or they can compare different types of animals they see; and this will encourage them to ask questions and investigate further.
Naming Parts of Plants and Animals covers:
A wilted flower
For each of these topics, a picture shown on the screen is completed by dragging the different parts (eg with a flower: petal, leaf, roots, stem etc.) from the right of the screen and placing them into the correct position. When all of the parts have been placed, labels can be added, and children can click on the labels to hear and read more about that part of the plant or living creature.
Naming Parts of Plants and Animals works at the pace of children, so that children can stop and think, or ask questions of an adult. All of the children's attempts will be recorded, so that a teacher or parent can view the total number of correct and incorrect answers, and it can be used in either English or Spanish
At Storm Educational Software we work on developing apps for young pupils to get to grips with basic science. We design our apps to best suit the needs of today’s pupils, teachers and parents, using the requirements of the National Curriculum and the Next Generation Science Standards. We’re also great lovers of science in all its wonder. - take a look at our We Love Science blog at http://welovescienceblog.wordpress.com for further fun scientific explorations!
Naming Parts of Plants and Animals provides children with a foundation of understanding for further investigations into the natural world. The perfect assistant for any teacher or parent!
