Halloween is over and Christmas is not far away. These seasonal festivities are a great way to introduce your child to the science of seasons. This app is another way!

Critical thinking skills are developed while using this app as your child chooses the appropriate clothing and activities to suit the weather. Progress is tracked for each profile created, and your child is able to go straight from this app into other i Learn With apps to continue learning. The difficulty of the activity is automatically adjusted according to your child's success and instructions are given verbally which helps non-readers to engage.
Poko Pippity Pop! This app is sure to bring your child hours of fun while teaching about how weather affects what we wear and what we do. This could lead to other discussions in class or while home schooling about how the environment influences different cultures in different countries. Recognising seasonal changes is a great skill for a child to have to be able to appreciate the ecosystem that they are a part of and to see the bigger picture.
