How I Use It
I used this with kindergarteners, who were put into groups of two or three. They were able to work through the levels and solve problems together. First graders could easily solve the puzzles without partners but might enjoy the teamwork aspect.
My Take
This is a great beginning programing app for young students. It gives them confidence as they pass through levels and solve problems.
