DinosaurDays is an animated learning tablet app for kids aged 5-11 and can be used at home or at school, individually or in a group. Each short animated film about these mysterious, ancient creatures goes into detail about how they lived, what they ate, how they developed and how they were discovered.
We look at the three ages of the dinosaur era – the Triassic, which was when the first dinosaurs appeared, around 220 million years ago, the Jurassic, when the biggest land creatures roamed the earth and the Cretaceous which was around 65 million years ago, the last phase with some of the most interesting dinosaurs we know about. Also, we learn about fossils: what they are, how they are formed and how they are dug up again. We learn about evolution, which is how dinosaurs – and all creatures for that matter - change over time. And we learn about paleontology, which is the study of fossils and the history of life on earth.
DinosaurDays contains extensive material for teachers and parents. Each dinosaur has a factsheet, which can be downloaded, and each time period or study area has a downloadable worksheet. Teachers have access to worksheets, quizzes, glossary and the bibliography as well as a teacher’s guide to using the material in the classroom, or for the home.
my 4yr old loves this app! keeps him entertained and interested. he knows a lot about dinosaurs already and this just adds to his knowledge of them. he is fascinated with all things prehistoric and before. this app definitely gets 5 stars from us.
(I made the decision to upgrade to the paid version within minutes of downloading the free version. It was a no-brainer)
I actually downloaded this app for my daughter, but ended up getting sucked into it for hours myself. The graphics and animation are of breathtaking quality. Production value is extremely high here, so the eye is encouraged to keep watching, even for the artwork alone. The fact that it's educational, packed with interesting info and accurately presents the dinos grouped into their time periods, makes this app a winner.
I just love this app. I was looking for something to entertain and educate children and this was the perfect match. The graphics and animation are outstanding and I really enjoy how it simply takes you on a really FUN journey through the different phases of let's say dinosaur evolution. It makes learning about dinosaurs a real treat as it's full of interesting and useful facts and can keep you occupied for hours. Two thumbs up!
I purchased this app as gift for my niece who is fascinated with dinosaurs (and the iPad). Little did I know that I would be the one enjoying it! It is informative and engaging. The simple and elegant graphics changed my view of dinosaurs as dusty old bones!
