Great Apps for Kinesthetic Learners

One of the huge benefits of apps for young children is their ability to appeal to a broad range of learning styles, including visual learners and kinesthetic learners (those that learn through physical action). 
Here at the Educational App Store, we are constantly impressed by the quality of apps that open up learning opportunities for children who might otherwise struggle to learn tricky concepts. 
This week we have reviewed apps that will appeal to visual and kinesthetic learners through tactile gameplay.
