A good knowledge of science vocabulary is necessary in understanding important science concepts. Science contains specialized words that may be unfamiliar to students. It is hard to have a deep understanding of science words. One of the good ways to learn science words is to go through the word, it's definition, and have some contextual meaning. This is precisely what is available through this 3rd grade glossary #1 App.

Different kids have different styles of learning and remembering things. From our research, we have learnt that some kids look at pictures and science terms and relate to them, some kids would read the definitions and try to understand with pictures as a reference, while some kids preferred to hear the voice narrations while looking at the reference pictures. In this app, we have included all of these methods of learning. Kids can choose to use any of these styles to learn science terms - goal being to get familiar and learn from this App.

Along with learning, there are practice modules for each of these sections to reinforce what they have learnt.

This app is divided into the following 3 learning and 3 practice units.
+ Earth Science

Great learning app.

Love this app. It explains meaning of glossary words in a simple way. The pictures are great. Have been using the pictures to explain to my 8 yr old when he can’t understand.
