Description

Dig into our planet and the forces that shape it. Trigger earthquakes! Make volcanos erupt! Discover fossils. Investigate plate tectonics, weathering, erosion, and deposition. Move glaciers and beaches.

***** Children's Technology Review Editor's Choice *****

The Earth is an interactive model that lets kids study geology and ecology. Kids explore and play with the geological forces that change the Earth—above and below the surface, in minutes and over millions of years. Kids can also learn about conservation as they test clean energy sources, clean up beaches, and preserve forests.

The Earth is No. 5 in Tinybop’s Explorer’s Library. Each Explorer’s Library app lets kids explore the invisible and awesome wonders of STEM. Kids (and kids at heart!) develop foundational science literacy.

"This is a great way to let children informally and playfully discover some of the big ideas they’ll encounter later on in their school curriculum. Apps like this one are good reminders for why you spent hundreds of dollars on a phone or tablet for your child." — Warren Buckleitner, editor, Children's Technology Review

Head’s up:
We removed kid accounts. For most of you, this just means you’ll get to start playing faster. For some of you, this just means everyone who plays the app will now start from the same place instead of from their own account. No data was associated with or stored in these accounts so playing shouldn’t otherwise be different.

As always:
We love hearing from you! Please leave feedback in reviews or email support@tinybop.com. <3
