PATCH THE PATH GAME
Help your animal friends return to their homes in this augmented-reality game, which uses a tablet’s camera to combine the real world with digital content. Travel through 5 different environments and apply spatial memory, visualization and modeling skills, while investigating, predicting, putting together and taking apart two- and three-dimensional shapes. But this isn’t a game to play just sitting on your couch! By using the camera on your tablet, plus the “AR” technology, you can play while moving your whole body around the gameboard.

FEED THE CRITTERS GAME
The critters are hungry. Feed them by flicking food - but watch out for walls and obstacles. Play with 5 different animals in their Botopolis habitats, while you practice spatial reasoning.
HIDE AND SEEK GAME
The animals have hidden behind different geometric shapes. Can you find them all? Practice your geometry vocabulary while learning about hexagons, right angles, number of sides, and much more.
