The app opens giving kids the opportunity to take a selfie of themselves when they register as a new player. This feature is ALWAYS a huge hit with children and is a great way to get them involved from the get-go.
For the classroom setting teachers have the option of solo, multiplayer, or whole group instruction with the app adapting to a smart board for entire class participation. There is even an option for using a multiple devices mode when connected to a WIFI network. Gameplay is in the form of the classic spin the wheel format with three different levels to choose from. The Rookies, Stars, and Legends coincide with curriculum for the 3rd, 4th and 5th grade. There are five categories covering science, math, fire safety, social studies, and the most popular Sparky’s choice. Kids we worked with were excited to race to answer questions before the time ran out and were determined to win the five different character badges. As teachers, we liked the topics and mixture of questions as well as the choice of three levels.
• Extra time – Some kids just need it!
• Spin again – Always a good thing!
• Skip question – Helps the diverse learner!
