In PBS KIDS Measure Up!, children ages 3 to 5 join PBS KIDS characters on an adventure through Treetop City, Magma Peak, and Crystal Caves practicing early math concepts focused on length, width, capacity, and weight with their friends from Dinosaur Train, Peg + Cat, and Sid the Science Kid. Children can also collect rewards and unlock digital toys as they play. At the same time, caregivers can monitor and expand upon what their child is learning using a free companion app: PBS KIDS Super Vision™.
Specific features of Measure Up! include:
*19 unique measuring games
*10 measurement-focused video clips
*Sticker books featuring favorite PBS KIDS characters
*Rewards for completion of tasks
*Embedded challenges and reports to help parents and caregivers monitor kids’ progress
*Ability to track your child’s progress using the PBS KIDS Super Vision companion app. (Read more about Super Vision below.)
*Note: The PBS KIDS Super Vision app is a smartphone-based app that enables parents to be aware of what their child is playing and watching in the Measure Up! app by providing summaries of games played, videos watched, and math skills covered in the games and videos. It also provides tips and related activity ideas to extend learning into daily activities and family time.
