Recently added to the UKEdChat Apple EduApps page is Shape the Village for iPad. Aimed at younger learners (Early Years – children aged up to 5), this app contains 16 different activities which focus on the definition, appearance, composition and distinguishing characteristics of different shapes to help children develop spatial intelligence and essential geometry skills.
The app challenges the child to re-build objects which fall from place throughout the various activities which are highlighted on the main screen. The game teaches basic shape names, such as circle, square, triangle and rectangle. There is ample opportunity for the child to be taught using language of the features of the shapes.
Currently priced at £1.99*, the app is available by clicking the App Store image below.
