This educational game uses 75 historic photos to document the Apollo 11 mission to the moon in 1969, and is
suitable for History students from grade 4 onwards. Students can see the Saturn V rocket being assembled, follow the
astronauts through training, watch them fly to the moon and return safely to earth. Includes original NASA recordings
plus spoken facts.
Students hear a spoken description or fact and choose the matching photo. They then hear more information which they will need to answer subsequent questions. After six right in a row, Race Mode starts automatically. It asks questions at speed to test the student's memory and comprehension of the material just covered, before continuing with new information about the Apollo mission. At the end of the race, students can see how well they have done relative to their other races. The game gradually focuses on any information that the students have difficulty understanding, and speeds up as competence is gained.
By contrast to Race Mode, Story Mode slowly introduces new facts about the Apollo mission by saying them as the photos are shown, allowing students to quietly look, listen and learn.
The game is controlled by on-screen gestures which are simple to demonstrate and easy to use, and the game can be played without voice prompts.
The paid version of this app has much higher resolution photos than the free version. The free version has lower resolution photos and does contain advertising but no push advertising. No internet connection is required.
