a4cwsn's insight:

March of the Dinosaurs is an interactive storybook that comes alive in your hands with highly realistic 3D dinosaurs that spin and zoom at the touch of your fingers.

Another offering from Touch Press (creators of The Elements and Solar System for iPad), March of the Dinosaurs takes the reader on a journey for survival, fraught with danger – blizzards, volcanic eruptions and deadly predators. Set in the Arctic 70 million years ago, Scar, a young Edmontosaurus, embarks on his first thousand-mile migration. It is a world of extremes: hot summers with 24-hour sunlight are replaced by freezing winters with continuous night.

Follow the story page by page, either reading at your own pace or with the text dynamically highlighted and spoken by Dr Who actor Kerry Shale. Use your iPad to meet the cast: 10 realistic 3D animated dinosaurs that can be rotated and zoomed, featuring scientific fact files about each of the creatures. High definition digital animation, specially produced by the team behind the National Geographic special “Escape of the Dinosaurs”, brings alive dramatic key moments in the story.

A Montessori Approach to learning about prehistoric animals.

Lessons
In Lesson #1 learn about 18 different Dinosaurs including Tyrannosaurus, Velociraptor and Stegosaurus. Explore each dinosaur learning about their name meaning, pronunciation, size, food, fossil locations and other basic information.

Next in Lesson #2 learn about different parts of dinosaurs with an interactive teaching method.
Touch a dinosaur part in the photo-strip to change the featured dinosaur part on the page. Touch the speaker button to hear the correct pronunciation of the dinosaur part and touch the location button to see the dinosaur part highlighted on the diagram!

Activity Set 1
In Activity Level #1 & #2 assemble the dinosaur puzzles with pieces that are based on popular physical Montessori materials:

In the first dinosaur puzzle lesson, children have to look for the dinosaur puzzle piece that is blinking on the diagram. When they touch the correct piece it will move into position on the diagram and the name of the part can be heard aloud.

In the second dinosaur puzzle lesson, children have to look for the dinosaur puzzle piece that corresponds to the name shown at the top. For children who cannot read, the plant part name at the top can be touched to hear the name aloud for them to know which one to look for.

Also included is a sorting activity to identify different examples of dinosaurs.

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

We sincerely thank you for your support of our Montessori applications and hope you enjoy this one!
