3rd Grade Math: Fun Kids Games includes several free activities and math games for 3rd grade to sample. These fun games for kids work well for the most part, but the perimeter game would not start for some reason. The directions for the games are easy to follow, and developers did a good job of targeting skills important in third grade math.
The entire ZapZap Math family of apps reliably include great targeted content across a wide array of math skills, and this app is no exception. The full app hits every area of curriculum, covering both Common Core and state standards. The sample includes practice with volume measurement, telling time, and more. The “gamification” of math is motivating in and of itself, and the space theme of 3rd Grade Math: Fun Kids Games adds to the excitement. The app includes tools to help students want to practice more, including earned rewards, daily return bonuses, and the opportunity to build a “city.”
