First of all, help Beebee locate for her photo album the pictures that denote specific weather conditions in Level 1. You will be asked to identify rain, clouds, snow and other such conditions. After that, in Level 2, try to assist Beebee and Poko to find the clothing and objects that do not match the weather of a particular day. In the final learning segment, Level 3, figure out all the things Poko has done recently based on the month and weather during that day. Your child must match the pictures together to complete each day. These are just a few of the age-appropriate and fun activities of this app.
The animation, sound effects and adorable characters in Seasons and Weather will engage children and keep them happily occupied learning for hours. When activities are answered correctly, your child will receive words of praise. Thus, their self-confidence will grow as will their familiarity with seasons, weather, days of the week and months.
