I’m always looking for entertaining ways to help supplement my kids’ education, so I was delighted to find this wonderful new app from the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum that allows my kiddos to join the Peace Corp or take part in the Space Race. This free app will have your kids learning American history through play.
Aimed at kids ages 8-12, The JFK Challenge will take your child on a learning experience through two of President Kennedy's most important initiatives.
We were talking in the staff room recently about popular apps in our house and with other kids we know. The discussion led to a few that I need to research (what exactly makes Jump Car so fun, anyway?), and I'm planning an informal survey at school this week. But one app I know is getting frequent play in my house is Spider-Man Unlimited. My two boys (13 and 10) and my husband are playing this app frequently, and several kids at work have mentioned playing it, too. I asked my husband, and so far they haven't made any in-app purchases! I like free apps that can actually be played for, well . . . free.
The folks at Blue Planet Tales have made a practice of bringing history to life through their stories while also making the learning experience fun for kids. Davy Crockett, the First American Hero, teaches kids US history by telling the story of one of the country's early heroes while still helping kids have fun.
This app will be free on February 12 & 13.
