Learn about ramps and age-appropriate science skills through fun, quirky video clips and clear step-by-step directions, question prompts, and activity ideas that help grown-ups promote offscreen learning, real-world connections, and critical thinking. The app is designed to guide grown-ups in facilitating a learning experience for their kids in an exciting and engaging way. The focus is on the family interactions that promote learning and enthusiasm around science. It also emphasizes the idea of giving kids ownership over developing their own ideas and testing them, which will translate into any other personal or academic endeavor. Families that want to add pizazz to traditional homework assignments or want to take a more active role in helping their kids make connections outside of school, will love this app. Ever struggle to explain a complex idea in a kid-friendly way? This app makes it easy. Peep Ciencias: Rampas is extremely easy to follow, since the app spells out everything from materials needed to what to say and when. It also provides explicit extension ideas. The parent videos clearly illustrate an example of what the sessions look like and sound like. It even shows parents the age-appropriate science vocabulary and skills that are addressed in each session. Families may be left wanting more content after finishing the eighth session, but the suggested activities can be used to engage kids over and over again. The general format of exploration can also be applied to other concepts. Overall, Peep Ciencias: Rampas is an awesome tool that will help families explore scientific concepts in Spanish. Best of all, it encourages families to spend quality time together and bond over learning.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
