Starting With Soil Teaches Kids About Organic Food and Healthy Eating

Starting With Soil Teaches Kids About Organic Food and Healthy Eating

Everyone knows that food is an essential part of life, but not everyone realizes the importance of making better food choices. Whole Kids Foundation wants to change this: their new app, Starting With Soil, is an interactive experience that teaches families where their food comes from and how organic values are connected to the food they eat.

Discover the Wonders of Soil

In Starting With Soil families can explore four informative chapters: The Origins of Organic Soil, Life Underground, Where and How Organic Food is Grown, and Composting and What Families Can Do. Each chapter is further broken down into several topics; when you select a chapter, the list of topics will be displayed. You can then tap or swipe through pages of content, most of which are interactive or animated.

Rudi Rainbow Introduces Kids to Weather Phenomena and Space Objects

Teaching kids about the weather can help them learn more about the world, plus it's a great way to nurture a fascination and love for science from a very young age. There are many weather-related activities you can try, but here's one you can do before bed: reading stories about the weather. I'd suggest Rudi Rainbow, an interactive story about a little rainbow who lost his colors.

Help Rudi Find His Colors

On a beautiful sunny day, while Rudi the Rainbow is playing with his friends in Tommy Tornado's yard, Harold Hurricane accidentally causes a huge storm that blows all of Rudi's colors away.

Code Karts Teaches Pre-coding Skills to Preschool Kids

Coding is an important skill for any child to learn. Not only because programming jobs are in high demand, but also because coding fosters crucial skills, such as critical thinking and problem solving. What's more, coding helps one better understand the devices and technologies they use every day.

Considering the many benefits of coding, it's no wonder that many children's apps want to teach kids how to code. Code Karts is one of these apps. Developed by Edoki Academy, it introduces pre-coding skills to children from the age of four through a series of logical puzzles.

Learn to Code on a Racetrack

Set on a racetrack, Code Karts teaches kids to code by navigating a race car around a track to get it to the finish line. To do so, they drag and drop direction bricks—colorful blocks marked with arrows—into the bracket on the top of the screen. The order of the bricks decides the car's path, and kids will need to figure out the correct sequence within three tries or it's game over.
