“Our Solar System”, one of YMI’s browser-based HTML5 Digital Learning Tools, combines a Drag & Drop Game with an EBook to teach the basics of our solar system in both English and Spanish. This three-part HTML5 game fits on the iPad, and can be customized for Desktop and projected whiteboard by basic keyboard browser commands (Zoom). “Our Solar System” has a built-in EBOOK, which pauses Game Play and allows Early Readers to read at their own pace about our Sun, the Earth, our Moon, and the 7 other planets: Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune.
“Our Solar System” contains 3 Game Components:
1. The Planets of Our Sun
2. Seasons of Planet Earth
3. Phases of our Moon
Students should be encouraged to read the EBook prior to playing each game by pressing/clicking on the button “STOP TIMER/READ EBOOK”.
Teachers can use the Assessment Chart at the end of each game to determine the student’s understanding of the topic. Use the Timer Score to assess a student’s improvement on repeated plays.
