Learn to measure length, time, weight and money

Kids Science : Measure is an educational app for children that helps them learn how to measure length, time, money and weight and practice with the results.

First of all, you need to choose the topic and choose the correct solution from the options presented below. In length, you should open the tape and calculate the length of pencils, balls and ribbons. In time, you should point at the hour that is asked and tap on Done when you think it's correct. In Money, you choose the coins you need in order to pay for the virtual product you've just purchased and then click on Done. Finally, in Weight, which is probably the most challenging of them all, you should try to find out how much does each product weight by placing the other units on the balance and calculating the result.

While the graphics are not too detailed or especially outstanding, the game is really educational and fun at the same time so we'd really recommend it to all the kids who're just learning to measure or want to practise their logic skills.

INFINUT is the developer of Kids Science : Measure lite and premium version, these games are nothing out of this world but perfect for kids who're in the learning process. Easy to use and works perfectly well.

Developer's original description available here
Young scientists learn to analyse the physical world by measuring across a variety of domains - time, size, weight and money. 5-8 year old kids measure length, weight, time and money in this science app using a tape, a scale, a clock and coins in 300+ exercises.

The games are -

* Length
Measure length and width of pencils, ribbons, balls and bookmarks - whole, halves and quarters.

* Time
Show time on an analog and digital clock in hours, half-hours, quarter-hours and 5 minutes.

* Money
Measure weights of watermelons, bottles, balls, boxes and many more.

* Weight
Pay for drinks, purses, fruits and many more using the coins.

These exercises help kids practice their scientific concepts in a practical way using made-up units of measurement. The mathematical concepts practiced include fractions, count-by-fives, addition by tens and hundreds, total using 25s, 10s, 5s and 1s. Some of the exercises can be solved in more than one way. Kids experiment with solutions as they play.

Appendix - Common Core -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
List of Common Core Phonics Topics covered in Measurement Science for Kindergarten to Second Grade.

Kindergarten Topics Covered -
CCSS.Math.Content.K.MD.A.1 Describe measurable attributes of objects, such as length or weight. Describe several measurable attributes of a single object.

First Grade Topics Covered -
CCSS.Math.Content.1.MD.A.2 Express the length of an object as a whole number of length units, by laying multiple copies of a shorter object (the length unit) end to end; understand that the length measurement of an object is the number of same-size length units that span it with no gaps or overlaps. Limit to contexts where the object being measured is spanned by a whole number of length units with no gaps or overlaps.

CCSS.Math.Content.1.MD.B.3 Tell and write time in hours and half-hours using analog and digital clocks.

Second Grade Topics Covered -
CCSS.Math.Content.2.MD.A.1 Measure the length of an object by selecting and using appropriate tools such as rulers, yardsticks, meter sticks, and measuring tapes.

CCSS.Math.Content.2.MD.C.7 Tell and write time from analog and digital clocks to the nearest five minutes, using a.m. and p.m.
CCSS.Math.Content.2.MD.C.8 Solve word problems involving dollar bills, quarters, dimes, nickels, and pennies, using $ and ¢ symbols appropriately. Example: If you have 2 dimes and 3 pennies, how many cents do you have?

Recently changed in this version

3.0 Narrator changed. Weights exercise answers show only after the scales are balanced.
2.0 Voice Instructions and Hints added. Orientation for all screens changed to landscape. Rewards on completing every few exercises. Navigation Improvements. Added different types of things to measure.

    Perfect for extra practice. Keeps track of progress. Only bummer is it doesn't stop until the end and its a bit exhaustive for the kids if you don't stop it after awhile. Should be shorter goals addinng up to completion.

    The graphics and gameplay are pretty simple, and I don't think this game is worth more than the iirc 99 cents they ask for it. For telling time I like "interactive telling time" a lot better, and for money I think I prefer "Marley's math farm". I haven't found better versions of measuring length or weighing objects though.
