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.
