I originally thought this would be alright for my 4 year old but quickly learned it was more advanced, so my 8 year old actually got a new game. I am kind of glad though since it involves reading and that is something she is falling behind on. We have always liked The Magic School Bus cartoons, and found them really educational (and fun!). I can’t say that there was wasn’t a time when even mom was not glued to the screen of an underwater adventure on the bus.
In this game, there are 7 levels. That might sound like a small amount compared to something like Mario Bros or Zelda (is that even a game anymore?), but The Magic School Bus encourages educational participation. Reading, choosing correct answers, and understanding concept of things. This helps prolong the game and wanting them to learn more. So, where as other games may go faster, at least at the end of this one, they know how many legs an octopus has and why sea turtles are so cool.
Overall- A+ and we love it!
With Magic School Bus: Oceans, readers age 4 and up take a deep-sea adventure with iconic teacher Ms. Frizzle and her class of young adventurers: a wild ride to the ocean floor. The highly interactive app engages readers with the story by using Scholastic’s “Touch and Tilt” technology. By touching animals, characters, and objects on the iPad screen, readers reveal fun animations, and nearly 40 real-life photos and videos of ocean animals and plant life.
