About the story-
There are five Wiley kids: Milagros (Millie) Reyes, Freddie Tanaka, Sleater Wiley, Kyle Baldwin, and Neil Chandler. Their group gets its name from the fact that they live in a town called Wiley Park. This new episode opens with a music video that sets the stage for the story. It was filmed near Los Angeles, in a wilderness area previously inhabited by the Tongva Tribe. Also scattered throughout the chapters are still photographs and audio clips that explain and highlight new vocabulary.
The Adventure of Cottonwood Canyon takes the Wiley kids on a journey connecting ancient Native American history with modern day pressure to develop this wild canyon. The discovery of a cave filled with ancient wall paintings is the catalyst that sets off a chain of events that nearly ruins the sacred site and puts the kids in danger.
What Fun Educational Apps Liked-
Past generations of readers enjoyed both Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys Mysteries. The Wiley Kids represent a new generation of tech-savvy middle schoolers who use the tools of observation, deduction, and teamwork to solve mysteries in their own community.
Technically, this app is flawless. Its elegant design incorporates Native American artwork and showcases the culture and civilization of the Tongvans. The story unfolds at a nice pace, with just enough clues dropped along the way to keep the reader engaged.
Moxie Industrials has also created a teacher’s edition for The Adventure of Cottonwood Canyon. It comes complete with multi-level questions and vocabulary review.
In a Nutshell-
The Wiley Kids in the Adventure of Cottonwood Canyon incorporates educational content into a fictional story that will appeal to children ages 9-12. Its relevant topic and high quality design make this latest in the Wiley Kids series a TOP PICK for Fun Educational Apps.
