This app is for all junior geologists.

***** 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

Editors’ Notes

Part digital toy and part planetary handbook, The Earth gives kids insight into the workings of our world in a way that’s delightfully intuitive and fun. From rockslides to earthquakes to erupting volcanoes, these artful interactive dioramas respond to tapping and swiping with results that are both whimsical and educational. An accompanying guide for parents and teachers delves into the technical science behind all these phenomena, but kids can explore, experiment and absorb earthly knowledge at their own pace.

Confused

I give this a 4star because it looks really good but I can't seem to be able to get it to work. It's very educational and looks like it has a good meaning. If anyone knows how this works (like in how to get he white side bar on the right etc) please say🙂
