Good Free App of the Day: Lipa Train - limited time only!

All Aboard! It is time for the Lipa Train to pick up fruit around the tracks, but the train needs a child's help to know the way. Changing arrows at intersections will show the train which way to go. A child must use predicting, while exploring the relationship between actions and consequences, to decide on the best route for the train. A wonderful FREE app designed for children ages four to six years old to explore.

Lipa Train was made by Lipa Learning to provide a scientific experience for children. The levels increase in difficulty with the track becoming longer, more arrows needing to be manipulated, and more fruits to pick up in a given order. This app represents cause and effect in a fun and engaging way for children. If the correct route is not chosen, the train will blow smoke and then continue onto the chosen path, which may take longer.

This is a wonderful app for our all stars that need help with cause and effect, problem solving, and predicting. Start chugging along with the train, while practicing a variety of science related skills for FREE.

FREE Game of the Month... Lipa Train is available FREE to download until the end of January!
