Moose & Zebra. Sweden by DashForward Lab is a very educational app that presents a ton of information on the country and culture of Sweden in a way that is completely accessible for young children. Join Moose and Zebra as they travel to Moose's homeland. With 18 pages of information, this app is surprising engaging and fact filled.
The app begins with a menu page where users can choose which of the 18 activities they want to do. Though completing any of them will automatically move you to the next page, so users can just play through continuously if they want to. Beginning with the Hi page, users tap Zebra and Moose to learn what the app is meant to do. From there, tap the arrow to move on or the home button to choose another page.
Each page is both a teaching tool and an interactive task. Users learn about the capital while matching families to homes, paint wild and domestic animals, color flags, even do dot-to-dots. Each page has some sort of educational component matched with a fact about Sweden.
What Fun Educational Apps Liked
This app is really well designed and engaging for children. The activities that went with most pages were matched well with the facts shared. A few pages seemed a bit random, but for the most part the connection was obvious. There were several pages that won the popularity contest at our house. Of course anything having to do with the Vikings was a big hit, as well as helping the squirrel continue his food storing patterns. I really liked the variety of activities available on each page. From following directions, to coloring, to counting, this app had a nice representation of different skills. I also really liked that it taught about a country that many children (at least in the US) might not be as familiar with. Additionally, the graphics were well done and cartoony in a way that would appeal to the early elementary age crowd.
Overall, Moose & Zebra. Sweden is fun and educational way to learn about a culture that you might not be all that familiar with. The cute characters, small doses of facts combined with interactive components, and variety of tasks, make this a fun learning app suitable for the children in your life.
