Parts of Animals - Vertebrates

 

UPDATES shown above available NOW!!

Ages 2-6. Packed with beautiful features, colors and audio, this app will engage young children to explore what makes a fish a fish, what makes a bird a bird, etc. You'll be surprised how much children will learn and retain with this app! We first released it in 2012 and are happy to keep bringing you updates! 

In the Learn the Parts section, children will learn to identify the parts and names of different vertebrate animals. 

Touch an animal part in the photo-strip to change the featured animal part on the page. Touch the speaker button to hear the correct pronunciation of the animal part and touch the location button to see the animal part highlighted on the diagram! 

The Puzzles section contains various puzzle activities based on the famous wooden animal puzzles found in Montessori classrooms.

For the "Shapes" puzzles, find the puzzle piece the matches the shape that is blinking on the diagram. When the piece snaps into position, you will hear it's name pronounced out loud.

For the "Names" puzzles, find the puzzle piece that matches the name displayed on the screen. For children who cannot read, the name at the top can be touched to hear the name aloud for them to know which one to look for. 

In the "Free Order" puzzle, simply assemble the puzzle in any sequence you choose.

This Montessori application was co-developed and approved by an AMI certified, Montessori teacher with over forty years experience educating children!
