Underwater Learning Adventure is an ocean themed learning app for toddlers, preschoolers and kindergarteners. It helps kids develop picture and name recognition skills, receptive vocabulary, numbers, counting, memory and executive functioning. With adaptive learning system, it adjusts the difficulty levels based on child’s performance.
There are 3 games in the app:
Game 1- counting
kids pop the numbered bubbles in the order from the smallest to the biggest number. It starts with 5 numbers. If kids correctly identify the order, they can move to more numbers, 1 to 10; then 1-15; and the last level is 1 to 20. If kids choose the wrong number they will be asked to choose again. If they choose the wrong number for 3 times, they will see a hint.
Game 2 – Treasure chest memory game
Kids are given treasure chests with hidden treasures. They are shown for a couple seconds what are in the chests, then the chests are closed. Kids have to find pairs with the same treasures. They have to complete a consecutive number of games to move forward to the next level. If they do not match all the treasures in the time frame, they will move back a level. It starts with 4 treasure boxes, then 6, then 8, and last, 10 treasure boxes. When it is at the last level, it gets very tricky – sometimes, the treasures are switched between boxes! Make sure tell kids to pay close attention when they play the game.
Game 3 – find the right item
Kids are asked to find certain items of certain color and size, like the biggest blue starfish. It starts with 2 items, two features, 4 colors. As kids perform well, they will quickly move to 3 items, 10 colors.
For all three games, each time kids answer a group of questions right, they can earn a fish for their aquarium, where they can interact with the fishes.
Overall, it is fun game app for young children to learn numbers, colors, size comparisons. The colorful setting and pleasant music is calm and soothing, making you feel you can stay in the app for a long time.
