9:04 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story
Kids Domain has once again updated their listing of shareware/freeware titles geared towards children with a new offering of Mac titles. Here is a list of new items added over the Holiday weekend:
- Space-Based Astronomy
This PDF doc, geared towards kids 5 to 8, includes a wealth of activities and information on the science of Astronomy, including the U.S. space program and the Mars surveyor program.
- Paso Partners Bilingual Instruction
A PDF doc aimed at 1st graders, this download focuses on plants, seeds, and good health practices. Various activities in language, mathematics, and science are included. This PDF is part of a larger program, designed for Hispanic-primary children to whom English is a second language.
- Calorie Kids Node Jumpber
This game features the Calorie Kids. The objective is to rescue all the kids on each level by surrounding them with walls created by the player's Node Jumper. Players must watch out for the Calorie Kid DTS, and use Worm Holes, Transformers, and Force Fields to aid them.
- Calorie Kids Space Walk
The objective here is to push various platforms up or down to facilitate getting all the Calorie Kids from one side of a space station to the other. Think Lemmings on a very basic scale.
- Origami Bunny
This PDF contains instructions for creating an Origami Bunny, complete with a floppy ear. The designer of this has a website containing many paper-folding activities for anyone to access.
- Louis Street
A text-and-graphics adventure very similar to older games such as Cranston Manor and Tass Times in Tone Town, this title has players typing in directions and simple directions to interact with Louis Street, completing various tasks along the way. The author of this game developed it alongside her children.
- Master Word
This game, entirely in French, is a word-guessing game that is useful for building a French vocabulary.
Be sure to check out the site for links to the above as well as a huge listing of even more children-targeted downloads.
