ThemeWeavers: Animals Activity Kit
by Susan W. Hixson
Presents a very favorable review of ThemeWeavers: Animal Activity
Kit ($60) from Edmark of Redmond, WA (800). Requires a minimum of
Windows 95 and a 486/33 processor for a PC; and System 7.5.3, 68040
processor or Power PC for Mac; both require 256-color graphics, 16MB
RAM, 2X CD-ROM, and 10MB free hard disk space. Describes the Animal
Activity Kit as the first title in a series designed to help
teachers integrate technology and computer activities into current
thematic units of study. Adds that the program can help bring
animals into the study of math, science, social studies, and
language arts. Warns that there is not a feature to let students
correct their work, so the finished pages have to be checked by the
teacher. Recommends it as best used from Pre-K to first grade,
although the publisher recommends Pre-K to second grade. Rated five
on a scale of one to five.
Includes one screen display and a scorecard.
