How I Use It
This app has four different "scenes" that include different types of truck-based games. Most can be completed in a matter of minutes, so it gets old pretty quickly. There's a side-scrolling game, and a crane game, and two more. Overall, this app is more of a "brain break" than a learning tool that supports curriculum.
My Take
There's not much to it, and most students become bored after only a few minutes of play. When I gave it to my 8 year old son to try out, his summary statement was, "This isn't very educational," so there you have it. There are fun activities, although limited, and there's not much "learning" involved. It's more exploratory than educational. Good for iPad beginners and younger students.
