Cyberchase 3D Builder is an interactive app recommended for children ages 6-9. It is a 3D puzzle game featuring Buzz and Delete from Cyberchase. It costs $1.99 on ITunes but was featured for freefrom PBS kids free app packet. Cyberchase 3D builder is based on first and second grade math standards. The math concepts used are geometry, 2D and 3D shapes, matching, and spatial reasoning. Some examples include learning simple shapes, 3D shapes, and how shapes take up space. I plan on using this app to review math concepts of geometry, spatial reasoning and matching shapes. I used this as a reward for the children to encourage learning in my advanced students or students who need more assistance.
Here is how it works:
Children learn what 2D and 3D shapes are and the spatial reasoning. It helps them visualize and manipulate objects in space. There are eight levels to complete in the game. The game has different parts rebuild the neighborhood, construct a building, match the picture, shape challenge, and earn stars. The shapes start simple and then become more complex. Each child can create their own world with the shapes once they accomplish learning the simple shapes. Matching the picture is being able to match up each shape.
