This summer we just launched our first two Dinosaur Train games on PBS KIDS PLAY!, with two more coming soon. Our first game, “Life Cycles,” is a Life Sciences game. Buddy, the T-Rex character (and star of the show), is finding lots of plants, fish, frogs and other life in a pond he’s discovered and would like to know how little things like seeds and eggs turn into grown-ups. Kids help him figure out this knotty problem by rearranging picture tiles into the right order. (Each picture tile shows a plant or animal at a certain stage of development.)
What I like best about this game is that, after getting the life cycle sequence right, Buddy shows a recap of how that creature grows. Note: Since this is a three-level game, there’s going to be more tiles thrown into the mix at the higher game levels. Hope you enjoy!
