Sorting for Early Science is an educational app for use in schools or at home by children aged 4 to 8 years old. It builds on children's natural curiosity for objects and animals in the world around them. Is a pear a fruit of a vegetable? Does a penguin have wings?"Fun ... it definitely works" onlineanne.com"Really like the idea" a4cwsn.comHaving the ability to classify, or sort, items is an important scientific skill specified in the early years curriculum. This colourful, fun app helps children develop this ability, whether they are working alone or in small groups. It provokes lively classroom discussion, with children asking each other if they have seen a bat.or working out how to tell a fruit from a vegetable.Children classify items according to whether they are:Animals or PlantsTypes of AnimalsAnimals with Wings or No WingsNumber of LegsFruit or VegetableLiving or Not LivingThis is done by dragging objects from the top of the screen into one of the labelled circles on the screen. For some topics, there are overlapping circles for items that can go into more than one circle. There is a reporting option to allow adults to monitor the progress of children. Children can build their basic vocabulary, either in English, or in Spanish as the app can be switched between both languages.Sorting is part of a series of science activities which have been developed with consideration to follow the guidelines of the National Curriculum in the UK, and the Common Core Curriculum in the United States.Sorting has been created by Storm Educational, who have over 20 years experience of creating educational software for schools around the world. Our software is detailed on the Storm website at www.stormeducational.co.uk, and more science fun can be found on the We Love Science! blog at http://welovescienceblog.wordpress.com
