remain “clear and uncluttered” and can be played in any order.  Additionally, “They are all configurable so you can set the level of difficulty to suit your child, and adjust as their ability and confidence grow.”

Each activity features a selection of easily-recognizable animals (e.g. cat, bird, monkey, fish, cow, horse, etc.)  The number of animals vary on the difficulty levels.  The different activities included within the app are:

  1. Find the Same: 
    • This activity displays a set of pictures or written words.  Two of them are the same and the goal is to tap the two matching objects.
  2. Match the Pairs: 
    • The left hand side of the screen features a set of objects, one under another.  The right side displays a corresponding set in jumbled order.  The goal is to tap both matching animals of each pair to match them up.
  3. Where Was It?  
    • In this activity, there will be a set of cards presented.  Then the cards will flip over and become blank.  Then on the right side of the screen, you’ll be asked to select where the bird was placed, for example.
  4. What is Missing?
    • In this activity, a row of cards is shown across the top half of the screen.  A row of objects then appears on the bottom half, one of these matching the missing item above.  Tap the object at the bottom that you think matches the one above.
  5. Copy the Order:
    • A row of cards appears across the top part of the screen from left to right.  Then, the cards flip over into blank cards.  The original objects appear at the bottom of the screen and you’ll be prompted to place the animals in the correct order.
  6. Find the Hidden Pairs:
    • A set of cards appears in matching pairs but jumbled positions.  Try to remember what’s on each card and try to match them by memory.
