Is It Any Good?

This learning tool inspires curiosity and is an inventive, interactive way for kids to explore Earth, but some of the topics and vocabulary may be a bit too advanced for the target age. For example, the types of faults are named, and kids can manipulate how they function, but without any other context, most kids won't get a real handle on the differences. Adding narration could help, especially with the vocabulary terms. Also, the passage of time isn't clear, so changes that take eons seem to happen within seconds. Overall, kids will definitely enjoy the interactivity, and they'll feel empowered to explore the amazing graphics at their own pace, but some kids might require a bit more direction. The teaching handbook can help make the most of the learning experience.

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.
