Match and Measure App

£15.00(£18.00 inc VAT)
£40.00(£48.00 inc VAT)

This new app really measures up! Based on our bestselling dinosaur bones, the games in this app are carefully designed to develop the skills of comparing, estimating and measuring. Beginning with direct comparisons, the games progress to non-standard and standard measurements as the bones are used in different ways to consolidate and extend children’s mathematical understanding. Children will have lots of fun uncovering the bones in the sand and learning how to compare and measure in different ways. This app can be enjoyed alongside the physical Dinosaur Bones resources or independently of them.

Available for iPad, Android tablet, PC and Mac. For further details on device compatibility, please see the Apps FAQ.

2 reviews for Match and Measure App

  1. Louise Norwood, Head of The Oval Montessori Nursery

    “In the first activity children scrub the sand on the screen to dig up a bone and then match the bone with the correct place. This mechanic is relatively simple and gives instant feedback allowing younger children to understand and use it. However, the mystery and suspense of unearthing a dinosaur bone means older children will also stay engaged. It is therefore a perfect alternative to outside/sand play when there is limited time or equipment.”

  2. Niki Wilson, Manager, Folksworth Preschool

    “After the children found all the bones hidden around pre-school (which they loved and we had to hide the bones again and again!), we looked at the app with a few children. Well, I’ve never had so much fun with an app! The tape measure was the star of the show. The children loved moving the tape to measure the length of the bones then counting the squares to see if their prediction was right. The children laughed at themselves if they got it wrong but if they got it right, they danced around like a dinosaur! What I love about this app was the children’s ability to self-correct and to use it independently, but I could also watch how they persevered to complete the challenge.”
