Sample lesson idea
Students use their imagination to invent vehicles to do specific tasks. Once the vehicle has been designed, students can save the vehicle in the garage. Next students can type information to describe the vehicle by following an instructional objective or by using the guidance questions provided. Finally, students can share the vehicle and their description with the class or teacher for feedback. All this can be done without leaving the Create a Car application!
Sample Bloom’s Taxonomy questions for the vehicle description feature
1. Knowledge: List and describe some of the vehicle parts.
2. Comprehension: Explain what this vehicle can do.
3. Application: Where can this vehicle be driven?
4. Analysis: Identify the most important vehicle parts and explain why they are important.
5. Synthesis: If you could create a part that is not in the game, what would it be?
6. Evaluation: How could your vehicle be improved?

Ratings and Reviews
Creative automobile based fun
The game is good to unleash your car-based creativity... user friendly interface allowing you to create weird vehicles... And drive them.
The driving game section is kinda underwhelming, what you add the your car in the creator does not seem to have much changes to the speed/abilities though the car looks like the one you built which is the main thing and is probably exiting for the younger target audience.
This is a brilliantly creative app and my 4th old son loves it. He actually came up with some suggestions to improve it and would like to be able to change the colour of the vehicles, have some flashing lights and siren noises for the emergency service vehicles and extra engine noises for the garage (probably coz the tractor sounded the same as the car). If it is possible to touch the lights and sirens/horns in the garage to make them work, this would be a 5* app. Thank you!!
Please update this app for iOS 11
