Space by Tinybop allows kids to be virtual space explorers.

Space by Tinybop Review

Space by Tinybop is a visually multilayered interactive app that helps kids learn about our solar system through play. Kids can explore each planet, our moon, and the sun, comparing them by size, weight, and many other unique features, such as windstorms, volcanoes, and rocky rings. 

Kids tap on a rocket to blast into space and then move around the planets to compare their size; they can also see how they rotate around the sun to compare the length of each planet's year. As students explore, they can figure out the phases of the moon by tracing its orbit or zoom in on a planet to interact with the surface.

Students explore the planets and moons in our solar system using their spacecraft and a set of tools. These tools are everyday objects -- such as a snowman -- that kids can drag onto a planet to see if it melts, learning general information about the temperature of the planet; they also can throw rocks to see if a planet has an atmosphere. Descriptive labels about the features of a planet can be turned on or off as needed. 
Kids can learn facts about our solar system, including the names of planets and moons, as well as simple and complex space-related vocabulary ("sunspot," "partially molten mantle," "hydrogen and helium gas," "slushy sea") in multiple languages. Educational value increases for kids who can read or have the labels read to them.
