10 Amazing Fruits
Business, USA
Materials Required: Computer
Concepts Taught: Imagination

Ten Amazing Fruits is a fascinating game for young children. This game stimulates imagination and develops eye-hand coordination. Controlling and changing the cartoon graphics fascinates children for hours.The different, funny Fruit faces that the children create can be printed or saved to disk. The cartoon graphics are easy to manipulate with a mouse, and the endless variety of cute (Fruit) characters captivates children's attention for hours. Pre-school and kindergarten teachers use the characters that students design as story prompts, for Show-and-Tell language development, and as electronic presentations. Children's oral language improves as they name and describe the characters they design. Children's imagination and higher-order thinking skills improve as they describe the actions they took and as they describe thoughts they held as they created their unique characters.
